Subject[bug] 2.4.18 Call Trace: [link_path_walk+889/2008] [path_walk+26/28] [open_namei+131/1596] [filp_open+59/92] [sys_open+54/204] [system_call+51/56]
From
Date
I'm not sure if I should be sending an oops from a Debian 2.4.18 kernel
or not? ... this may be useful. I'm not subscribed to the list.

[1.] One line summary of the problem:

unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000081
[2.] Full description of the problem/report:

I found this oops in the kern.log on one of our machines and thought it
might be useful?

[3.] Keywords (i.e., modules, networking, kernel):

kernel, seems to be filesystem.

[4.] Kernel version (from /proc/version):

Linux version 2.4.18-686-smp (herbert@gondolin) (gcc version 2.95.4 (Debian prerelease)) #2 SMP Wed Mar 20 20:24:14 EST 2002

[5.] Output of Oops.. message (if applicable) with symbolic information
resolved (see Documentation/oops-tracing.txt)

[6.] A small shell script or example program which triggers the
problem (if possible)

Can't seem to reproduce manually, but these happen every now and again.

[7.] Environment

Debian/linux mail server, with quite high average load.

[7.1.] Software (add the output of the ver_linux script here)

This is not the same machine that the kernel was compiled on.

(please look in /proc and include all information that you
think to be relevant):

[X.] Other notes, patches, fixes, workarounds:

kernel-source for DEBIAN
------------------------
These patches were applied:

* NFS client seekdir patch
http://www.fys.uio.no/~trondmy/src/

These modifications were also made:

* Fixed a couple of argument processing bugs in main.c (Eric Delaunay).
* Added initrd support for cramfs.
* Exported proc_get_inode.
* Hacked ide_xlate_1024 to work when IDE is modularised.
* Fixed pegasus_set_multicast lockup.
* Work around 21143 (rev 65) select_media bug in drivers/net/tulip/21142.c.
* Fixed dead lock on shutdown in 8139too.
* Allow ECN to be compiled in but disabled.
* Removed non-free Keyspan firmware.
* Don't kill page cache entries in set_blocksize.
* Added support for nm256xl+ (Mattia Monga).
* Fixed handling of HIDs with product strings bug no manufacturer.
* CONFIG_SERIAL_ACPI now depends on CONFIG_SERIAL == y.
* Fixed negative inode numbers in /proc/net (Arnaud Giersch).
* pcnet32_purge_tx_ring may be called from IRQ context (Darren Salt).
* Check old_bbpnt in drivers/scsi/sr.c (2.5).
* Removed CONFIG_FT_ALPHA_CLOCK.
* Export est_cycle_freq (needed for removing CONFIG_FT_ALPHA_CLOCK).
* Fixed the use of return values from mem*_io in drivers/isdn/sc.
* Added missing headers in drivers/pcmcia/i82092.c.
* Fixed compile error in drivers/scsi/dpt_i2o.c on alpha.
* Removed -g from driviers/atm/Makefile.
* Added missing personality patch to fs/binfmt_elf.c.
* Extern inline -> static inline in
drivers/char/specialx.c
drivers/net/hamradio/soundmodem
* Added asm/io.h for in*/out* to
drivers/isdn/hisax/hisax_fcpcipnp.c
drivers/net/wan/farsync.c
* Fixed double free in
drivers/net/zlib.c
fs/jffs2/zlib.c

Changes to comments and documentation:

* Fixed typos in asm/socket.h.
* Fixed a typo in Documentation/sound/VIBRA16 (Carlos Valdivia Yag<FC>e).
* Fixed a typo in Documentation/sound/OPL3-SA (Carlos Valdivia Yag<FC>e).
