    Please try to reproduce in:

    ftp://e-mind.com/pub/andrea/kernel/2.3.7_andrea1.bz2

    I spotted many bugs and races there. It's rock solid here while a
    clean-2.3.7 was corrupting the fs (due block_partial_write bugs).
    Unfortunately such a beast is so different from stock 2.3.7 that it's
    quite difficult for me to extract the interesting patches alone without
    major editing work :(.

    With clean 2.3.7 I also reproduced a complete lockup in shrink_mmap (with
    SMP kernel and UP cpu). This never happens in 2.3.7_andrea1 that runs with
    bonnie + memoryhog for hours without any sign of corrption (again on an UP
    machine with SMP kernel, I am stressing it in real SMP only now that seems
    stable on UP). Between 2.3.7 and 2.3.7_andrea1 there's no one common line
    in shrink_mmap so I have no idea about the 2.3.7 trouble.
