    No, it is what it says, AFAIK.

    read/write/whatever system call tries to access past end of device
    although it isn't asked to (or the problem is somewhere deeper). This
    has happened to me on swap partition which had fairly dramatic effect.
    ;-) Not using last few blocks solved the problem. Of course, this
    shouldn't be the case...
