Subject[BUG] 2.5.5-dj2 and vfat oopses (ksymoops output included)
Hello everyone,

trying to copy a file to a fat 32 partition, the kernel oopses. Here is
the information
% uname -r
Debian GNU/Linux unstable
Dell Inspiron 8000
hda7, type c (FAT 32 LBA) on a 40 GB Toshiba HD
fstab entry for the partition:
/dev/hda7 /mnt/data vfat
rw,quiet,uid=1000,gid=100,codepage=850 0 0

ksymoops (made it immediatelly after the oops with the same modules
loaded and same kernel):

ksymoops 2.4.3 on i686 2.5.5-dj2. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)
-o /lib/modules/2.5.5-dj2/ (default)
-m /boot/ (default)

Warning: You did not tell me where to find symbol information. I will
assume that the log matches the kernel and modules that are running
right now and I'll use the default options above for symbol resolution.
If the current kernel and/or modules do not match the log, you can get
more accurate output by telling me the kernel version and where to find
map, modules, ksyms etc. ksymoops -h explains the options.

Warning (compare_maps): ksyms_base symbol idle_cpu_R__ver_idle_cpu not
found in Ignoring ksyms_base entry

3 warnings issued. Results may not be reliable.

The P in Tainted: is because of the NVdriver module. Fat and vfat
compiled as modules too. I can read with no problems from the partition,
but I can't write to it. Any clue/patch ?
