Accesses to nearly NULL are normally structure accesses where a pointer
to a given struct was supplied as a NULL pointer.
So an access to 0x00000004 is most probably an access to the second
element of a struct, given/expected that all fields are usually 4-byte
>From looking at ./kernel/irq/manage.c:setup_irq(), I guess that you
supply NULL as the "struct irqaction *", which is the 2nd argument of
setup_irq(). It's 2nd structure element is "flags" then... This is the
first thing accessed by the "new" pointer in setup_irq().
