Testing test11-pre3 with your inode.c patch and the above list_del
patch. x86 dual processor, IDE. Same workload as before, except
I cut out misc001 (and the machine recovered almost immediately
when I killed everything! Need more testing to characterise this).

kernel BUG at inode.c:83! The trace is below. Now, this was
probably triggered by my list_del change. If so it means
that we're doing a list_empty() test on a list_head which
has actually been deleted from a list. So it's possibly the
actual assertion in destroy_inode() which is a little bogus.

But the wierd thing is that this BUG only hit a single time,
after three hours of intensive testing. If my theory is
right, the BUG should hit every time. Will investigate further...

ksymoops 0.7c on i686 2.4.0-test12-pre3. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)
-o /lib/modules/2.4.0-test12-pre3/ (default)
-m /usr/src/linux/ (default)

Warning: You did not tell me where to find symbol information. I will
assume that the log matches the kernel and modules that are running
right now and I'll use the default options above for symbol resolution.
If the current kernel and/or modules do not match the log, you can get
more accurate output by telling me the kernel version and where to find
map, modules, ksyms etc. ksymoops -h explains the options.
