I figured out part of the problem. For some reason the device cipcb125
had hung. I killed cipe and the device stayed. I tried to remove the
module and it wouldn't let me. Since we were noticing other problems on
the box we decided a reboot was in order. When it came back up everything
was fine. I'm going to add your patch anyway just to make sure there
aren't any future problems. I was using 2.2.16-22 from Red Hat 7 and I was
running the cipe version we ship, plus the modifications to fix the number
