Risc PC, SA110 CPU, RPC_WSCONS kernel

While scp'ing my X sets to another machine, I got on the console:

Non-emulated page fault with intr_depth > 0

Running "sync" from ddb gets me "panic: wddump: polled command has been

Unknown, since I've only seen it this once.

 I think that stack backtrace is actually:


 The fault occurs while reading the second byte of a pair, which means that
 outsw() must have been passed a non-16-bit-aligned pointer.  This probably
 means that ea_writebuf() got passed an odd-length, odd-address block which
 ended on a page boundary, rounded it up to an even size and hence tried to
 transfer a byte from an invalid page.  This would usually be caught by
 DIAGNOSTIC, but that's turned off in RPC_WSCONS kernels.

 I'll fix this by having ea_writebuf detect odd-address buffers and handle
 them more appropriately.
