I confirm it's a kernel issue. Windows RNDIS is definetely buggy, but
the kernel driver is wrong also. See . After
applying this patch as well as the one mentioned in the thread later
and the second patch from this series, i can confirm that my
co-worker's windows machine no longer crashes. Networking still
doesn't work though.
