    It seems (and CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK also seems to contribute)
    init_MUTEX(&ni->mrec_lock);
    ...
    INIT_LIST_HEAD(...)

    and IMHO that shouldn't happen :) But you have the infamous 2.96
    compiler, there were several updates for Red Hat [remember how buggy
    code it complied?] but I don't know how many updates were issued for
    Mandrake and if you did those. gcc 3.2.2 generates much nicer code for
    __ntfs_init_inode.
