Subject[PATCH] Fix for OOPS on failed sysvfs mount
Hi Marcelo,

currently sysvfs lacks to mark inodes for which ->read_inode failed
to be bad. This make read_super OOPS if the root inode is invalid.

Doesn't touch generic code, ext2 does the same for ages.

Of course it doesn't work. We've performed a software upgrade.
