Hi fellows,

I've taken some time to look at this oopses, and I truly believe we
are facing real corruption.

The symptom is that an inode's (blockdev) i_mapping->private_list gets corrupted,
one of its buffer_head's contains a b_assoc_mapping list_head with NULL pointers.

And this is not an SMP race, because Gene is not running SMP.

Gene's oops happens when remove_inode_buffers calls __remove_assoc_queue(bh)

Ingo's oops happens while remove_inode_buffers does

struct buffer_head *bh = BH_ENTRY(list->next);

which is

mov ffffffd8(%ecx), (%somewhere)
%ecx is zero, so...

There is a bug somewhere.
