SubjectPROBLEM: kernel BUG at filemap.c:791
After compiling a 2.2.14 kernel on one of my systems, I've started
receiving this problem. Kernel is patched with the ext3 filesystem
patches, however running without ext3 being used results in this problem
as well.

This can happen at any time, I've seen it during startup and after the
system has been running for a couple of days; it is reproducable, but
not at will (ie, it's a given that it will happen but unknown as to what
causes it). Previous kernels I've run (2.4.2 and 2.4.6) do not exhibit
this problem.

Here's the crash info with symbols resolved:

--- snip ---

The problem is reported in the unlock_page function in filemap.c with
this bit of code:

if (!test_and_clear_bit(PG_locked, &(page)->flags))

Module-wise, the only options selected are for LAN drivers (not
including the one actually being used) and a SYM710 SCSI controller (for
an external CD-ROM drive that is powered off).

The following info comes from a stable 2.4.6 kernel procfs output (since
2.2.14 doesn't want to stay running long enough for me to get this info
from there):

CPU Info:

--- snip ---

No SCSI drivers loaded, but a Compaq SMART controller is in use:

Logical Drive Info:

nr_frees = 3961

--- snip ---

The system is an EISA system, Compaq Prosignia VS with 80 MB of RAM and
an AMD K5 processor, integrated AMD network adapter, Compaq SMART

The only other patch applied to this kernel is the one suggested in this
list for loopback device (loop.c to remove the deactivate_page(page)
calls which prevent the kernel from properly compiling.

I have a second system (Celeron 300A processor, 640 MB of RAM, and IDE
drives) that runs 2.2.14 with these same patches with no problems that
I've seen.

Please let me know if there's any other information needed to diagnose
this problem - this is the first time I've ever had a kernel crash, and
I hope I've included all the relevant information here. I don't
subscribe to the linux-kernel list, so all correspondence should be
copied to me directly as well if possible.
