1) Just because you/we're paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't after us.
2) Most likely coincidence, but could be related to the key size.  I
deal with lots of things that don't work with 4096 keys (Cisco, I'm
looking squarely at you on this one)
3) If not coincidence, I highly doubt you have reason to be targeted,
which is where the cool toys the NSA uses are directed, at specific
targets
4) If it were anything, I highly doubt it was the NSA.  The kernel
panic is indicative of someone who doesn't know WTF they are doing.
