Subject[2.4.10-pre11 OOPS] in do_generic_file_read
I got the following oops on startup while mounting the root filesystem.
Unfortunately there was no "Code" because of a bad EIP value. If anyone
would like more information or anything for me to test, please CC me.

I would like to remind some people that preX kernels aren't exactly
considered stable - _these_ are the kernel's Linus releases for public
_testing_. While a large change to the VM is pretty drastic, its pretty
clear that Linus is under a lot of pressure to "fix" it. Maybe if we can
think of a way to improve the vm without changing any code or add a
/proc/sys/vm/bugs interface, we should!

Cheers, Nick
