SubjectRE: OOPS in do_try_to_free_pages with VERY large software RAID array

I tried patching md by hand since you're patch is for 2.5 but I'm having
some issues. When I try to make bzImage I'm getting the following

md.c:139: `single_release' undeclared here (not in a function)
md.c:139: initializer element is not constant
md.c:139: (near initialization for `md_state_fops.release')
md.c:140: initializer element is not constant
md.c:140: (near initialization for `md_state_fops')
md.c: In function `md_state_seq_show':
md.c:3219: warning: passing arg 1 of pointer to function from
incompatible pointer type
md.c: In function `md_state_open_fs':
md.c:3238: warning: implicit declaration of function `single_open'
make[3]: *** [md.o] Error 1

Can you tell me if the single_release is a 2.5 "thing?" Can you point
me in the right direction as to how to fix this problem?.

I posted a patch to do exactly this last week to the Linux-RAID mailing
list. If
you check the archives you should find it. This problem also occurs if
you use
the device-mapper under 2.5.X, because it makes all 256 md minors appear
in the
tables and /proc/mdstat wants to tell you about all of them.
