    The problem seems to occur only in kernel 2.4.x (I've tried both
    2.4.17-rc1 and 2.4.13-ac5) but not in kernel 2.2.19.

    Under Windows 2000 I haven't noticed anythoing strange.

    The latest kernel oops I saw is :

    Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address ....

    while the call trace is :

    EIP : __mark_inode_dirty()
    try_to_free_buffers()
    block_sync_page()
    kernel_thread()

    Thanks
