Since the upgrade of the kernel in testing to 2.6.38 I have had
serious issues. Every once and a while, my laptop just reboots (It
looks like a kernel panic, however, this is not displayed on screen,
nor anything is in the log files).
Iam not fully sure whats the cause, as there is just no info in the
log files at all, as far I can see.
Iam not able to reproduce how the crash happens, it seems randomly. In
some cases it happens just after I did boot, in other cases I  can
work a hour on my laptops and it crashes.
Try removing VirtualBox and the wl driver.
Virtualbox doesnt seem to make any change. Iam not sure how to remove the wl driver, I cant seem to find it in the /etc/modules/
If that doesn't make a difference:

If anyone can give instructions on how to get more information iam
ofcourse willing to provide the required information. Right now, iam
considering going back to the 2.6.32 kernel.

You may be able to get some information with netconsole
<http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/networking/netconsole.txt>  if
you have another computer available.

When trying netconsole I dont get any message at all when it crashes, I will keep trying up more this weekend, but the crashes happens very randomly, so it is hard to predict when it happens.
