Hi All,

I've recently encountered the following in dmesg output after one of my
VM's crashed:

>>> dmesg output start
[2827116.693283] beam[28297]: segfault at 0000000c eip 0808f818 esp
bff7a294 error 4
>>> dmesg output end

Here is a disassembly of beam with some context around 808f818 :

Has anybody seen something similar ?
