Yes, kernel-mode drivers can be at fault, but AFAIK Linphone doesn't
include any kernel-mode driver.

An important goal of the kernel is to try and provide safety checks such
that one application can't mess up another, including the fact that one
application shouldn't be able to bring down the whole machine (since that
would mess up the other applications).
