Me. I have two computers, and I always get this message in the one that
ifconfigs up later. It seems to appear only if the other side answers to
something. Also for me this happens since I use 2.4.10.

The kernel's changelog mentions this reparent_to_init function, and IIRC
it's a new one. Perhaps it is not as stable as it should.
