We'll examine a set of nasty bugs in driver, linker, and kernel code that live in Ubuntu 10.04. This talk will examine how the bugs manifested themselves, low level debugging techniques to pry them out, and what can be done to work around tricky problems like this when shipping code that runs on other people's production systems.

Attendees will leave the talk a little frightened about their operating system, but armed with information on how to reason about and deal with particularly painful classes of bugs in lesser known areas of their systems.
