    It means that the request was not sane anymore, or specifically that
    clustered number of sectors was set to lower value than current number
    of sectors (which isn't valid, of course). The buffer-list destroyed
    comment tells you that this corruption is most likely due to the
    buffer_head list on the request having been corrupted -- which in turn
    probably means that someone seriously screwed this request.

    hda8: bad access: block=5296, count=-2
    end_request: I/O error, dev 03:08 (hda), sector 5296
    hda8: bad access: block=5298, count=-4
    end_request: I/O error, dev 03:08 (hda), sector 5298
    hda8: bad access: block=5300, count=-6
    end_request: I/O error, dev 03:08 (hda), sector 5300

    This errors would seem to backup that theory :-)

    Is this an SMP board? Also, is

    end_request: buffer-list destroyed

    the very first error message?
