SubjectOops in rpc_depopulate with 2.5.62
Getting rpc/nfs bugs on at least two different machines I've seen
and reports of a third from Zwane - all look similar. Anyone got
any bright ideas?


Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0000006c
printing eip:
*pde = 358d2001
*pte = 00000000

Seems to be crashing on the deference of:


in rpc_depopulate. But there's a big comment just above saying:

* FIXME: This probably has races.
static void
rpc_depopulate(struct dentry *parent)
struct inode *dir = parent->d_inode;
struct list_head *pos, *next;
struct dentry *dentry;



Looks like dir is NULL here ... might be dcache_rcu (a recent dcache_rcu
patch fixed the same file) or a race brought out by the changes.
