SubjectPROBLEM: Kernel 2.4.3 oops when hard linking UMSDOS files
1.  Kernel 2.4.3 oops when hard linking UMSDOS files

2. I can consistently generate a kernel oops by creating a file on
a UMSDOS file system, and attempting to create a hard link to it.
The same procedure has always worked fine on the 2.2 seriels

3. umsdos, link, hard-link

4. Kernel version 2.4.3, umsdos loaded as a module


Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000004

6. # /usr1 is a UMSDOS file system
date > /usr1/jnk1
ln /usr1/jnk1 /usr1/jnk2

7. AFAIK environment configuration is not critical, other than using
a UMSDOS file system.
