 grep -C dev_kfree_skb /usr/src/linux/{driver/net/ppp.c,include/linux/skbuff.h}

entering:
grep -C dev_kfree_skb /usr/src/linux/{drivers/net/ppp.c,include/linux/skbuff.h}

gave me:

Hm, you have a strange  ppp.c

Please comment out the ifdefs about  FREE_SKB, use
  #define FREE_SKB(skb)  dev_kfree_skb(skb, FREE_WRITE)
instead.
Tell me what happens.
