Subject2.5.41 still not testable by end users
I've been trying to test the 2.5 kernel since 2.5.39, but these warnings
really scare me off... if there's to be a freeze at the end of October,
these really need to be fixed until I (as a -maybe typical- user) feel
comfortable testing it....

I can take Linus' assurances that there is little chance of data
corruption, but while I'm getting messages like these, I can't use it as
my regular system, and I don't have any "Use regularly but don't depend
on" boxes lying around - it's rather oxymoronic.

This machine has run 2.0, 2.2, and 2.4 perfectly happily; if 2.5 can cope
with a pretty bog-standard hard disk (2.4.18 reports: HITACHI_DK239A-65)
then I'll happily test it (2.5 feels faster than 2.4 as a desktop system
from what I've seen) but until it boots without grief, I don't feel safe
testing it.

From what I've seen, this has been, "Yeah, dealt with" since 2.5.39, but
it still isn't fixed - I don't know whose problem it is, but before it's
done, I can't give any feedback,

Thanks for an excellent kernel so far guys,

Steve.... here's the dmesg output:
