Quoth Patrick Oonk:

I tested this on TWO different virgin 3.0 boxes, without any effect.

The trick, as discussed on current () FreeBSD ORG, was to use a precompiled
Linux binary, which apparently bypassed a certain sanity check in the
kernel.  It was indeed possible to force a kernel panic this way.

A fix by Don Lewis has been committed yesterday; the fixed version of
/src/sys/netinet/ip_input.c is 1.103 (1.104 contains some optimisations in
the fragment reassembly code).

Take care,

        -- Niels.
