Subject[BUG] null-pointer deref (perhaps reiserfs3)
Date
Hi,

on a machine that i can only reach via SSH at the moment, i got a
null-pointer dereference (see below). The machine runs kernel 2.6.9
without any additional patches.

It happened, while i was doing a "make install". A command within the
"installkernel"-script segfaulted. It seems that only the filesystem
mounted to /boot is affected. Any access to that FS blocks.

Is there any way to recover the situation remotely? I'm thinking about
unmounting /boot, and running fsck.reiserfs, but i cannot umount the FS,
since the device is still in use.
