uh-oh.

kill_super() calls ext3_put_super(), which releases all the
filesystem resources. kill_super() then calls invalidate_inodes()
which ends up inside the filesystem, which is now dead.

Before ext3, all the truncate cleanup code purely operated
at the buffer/page layer, and never made calls into the fs.
We changed that, and it broke.

I cannot believe this wasn't noticed before.

Thanks for the trace.
