Subject2.3.42 fs corruption
I would be interested to know if people who experienced fs corruption with
the late 2.3.x is able to reproduce after applying this patch on the top
of 2.3.42:

ftp://ftp.*.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/andrea/kernels/v2.3/2.3.42aa2.gz

The interesting bit is this:

ftp://ftp.*.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/andrea/kernels/v2.3/2.3.42aa2/buffer-4.gz

I am now running under heavy fs/dentry load 2.3.42aa2 on alpha and I am
waiting to reproduce. If you have hints on how to exploit the corruption
your're welcome ;).

BTW, 2.3.42aa2 has my alpha SMP irq rewrite to distribute interrupts on
all cpus:

andrea@alpha:~ > cat /proc/interrupts
CPU0 CPU1 TRY0 TRY1
1: 12145 0 12145 0 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 0 0 0 XT-PIC cascade
8: 1600189 0 1600189 0 RTC +timer
12: 6730 0 6730 0 XT-PIC PS/2 Mouse
27: 1097 1019 2104 2109 TSUNAMI eth0
46: 183507 132927 314589 315622 TSUNAMI sym53c8xx
47: 28 10 38 37 TSUNAMI sym53c8xx
LOC: 1600189 1600084
and only dp264 and sx164 compiles (I have not yet fixedup all platforms),
thus if you have another platform reverse this patch for now:

ftp://ftp.*.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/andrea/kernels/v2.3/2.3.42aa2/alpha-irq-4.gz
