I just had the same problem with ppp0 and kernel 424.
unregistered_netdevice: waiting for ppp0 to become free. Usage count = 1
First I couldn't reach outside networks anymore, I tried to restart the
VPN connection. Then the above message appeared in the console.
Killing pppd failed (even with -9). I tried to reboot, but reboot didn't
complete cause syslogd was repeating the message as in Ed's case.
I ended up in a power cycle - now it works again.
It worked perfect in kernel 391custom (just added NTFS support)
Just a quick update for you Arjan:
Today I installed kernel 427 and I'm running it for 6+ hours now and the
unregistered_netdevice problem is gone.
Thank you very much for the great work! :-)
