    I believe the "rw=0" means that was a simple read request, and not a

    128002016 equals about 62 gigs, which is the correct volume size:

    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sdb1 62995364 2832696 56962620 5% /xxx

    /dev/sdb1 on /xxx type ext2 (rw,noatime)

    I'm at a loss as to why ext2 would want to read 3+ gigs past the end of
    the volume or why the arcmsr driver setting max_sectors to be 4096 instead
    of 512 makes a difference.

    Erich, while using 4096 as the max_sectors count, in your lab can you make
    it so ll_rw_blk.c:handle_bad_sector() makes a call to dump_stack() after
    the printk's? What does it show as the call trace?
