What compiler firstly, and what I/O subsystem. Are you using highmem,
did you build from a clean tree ?

I also think your report is unrelated to the reiserfs one. 2.4.18 proper
and -ac have a small reiserfs fix which is a viable candidate for
reiserfs funnies while what you report is somewhat different

The actual differences between 2.4.18-rc2-ac2 and 2.4.18-ac2 that are not
in 2.4.18 are:

Maybe a candidate
shared memory filesystem fixes (also used for sys5 shm
and anonymous shared maps)
[copy mm/shmem.c from the working -ac to the current -ac
and retest]
Small pnpbios update (only relevant if building with PNPBIOS)
[Build without PNPbios and retest]

Wildly improbable
Correct NULL check in the sd scsi code
open fix for ps2 driver

Hw specific (check your hardware and config and you can rule these out I guess)
JFS specific fixes
A sparc64 specific compile fix
An off by one fix for loop that only affects using a specific
option with maxloop=256
Patches that only impact users of nbd
An AMD ELan specific driver for watchdog - no affect on others
Locking fixes for the softdog driver
A serverworks specific ide=nodma fix
LS220 experimental code (which shouldnt be enabled or matter)
Tiny tweaks to the margi DVD card driver
Ifdef of two lines specific to promise sx6000 raid
3c359 token ring driver (doesnt touch generic code)
olypmic token ring specific locking change
netrom specific fixes
