SubjectRe: [reiserfs-list] [bug] kernel panic related to reiserfs,2.4.0-test11-pre1 and 3.6.18
This is the first time I had kdb running.  All other times I lost the console
from the deadlock. The deadlock is bad enough to prevent any more access to
basically everything. I'm still running the same kernel and will do so for
several more days. It usually happens every two to three days.

No, I can't continue. Everything is halted beyond that. I can type into an
rxvt only until I hit enter, then that rxvt is hosed. I cannot even jump from
X to console. Even input via the serial console was dead. Luckily the
keyboard remained alive, I suspect it was only from the grace of kdb.
Normally it is also dead.
