It's not a known issue, otherwise, a final r6 patch would have not been
issued in the first place. Please send as much information as you have
on the crash information when loading adeos.ko. What you see might be
related to what Steve Seeger has experienced with his embedded target
over 2.6.7-r6 too. Knowing if 2.6.7-r5 works or not for you would be
nice to locate the change that might have affected stability in r6.
