SubjectOops in md_error/set_disk_faulty
Kernel: 2.4.8-ac8
raidsetfaulty v0.3d compiled for md raidtools-0.90

I accidentally entered the wrong disk device in a raidsetfaulty command,
which caused a kernel oops and appears to have locked the thread (so that
subsequent commands just hang).

The md device in question was:

md2 : active raid1 sdb4[0] sda4[1]
5839552 blocks [2/2] [UU]

And the command I entered was

# raidsetfaulty /dev/md2 /dev/hdb4
Segmentation fault

Then, I realized I put in the wrong device, so I tried to fix it...

# raidsetfaulty /dev/md2 /dev/sdb4
[hangs eternally]

I checked the kernel logs, and sure enough:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000034
printing eip:
