Subject[2.5/2.6] buffer layer error at fs/buffer.c:2800 when unlinking
Hi,

I've recently managed to nail down the problems that have been occuring on
my machine at least since 2.5.59. I use XFS as my rootfs, no other
filesystems are compiled in, but I doubt the filesystem is to blame, since
the problem does not appear under 2.4, despite the similar codebase.
Here's the guts: upon unlinking files in /var/{run,lock/subsys} (typically
during shutdown, but not only), and when doing "dd if=/dev/urandom
of=/etc/random-seed count=1 bs=512" the following traces appear:

Oddly enough, those errors do not appear when I touch and remove the files
manually. I can observe this behaviour on any kernel version between 2.5.59
and 2.6.0-test2. I didn't test earlier versions. The traces come from
2.6.0-test2.

FYI: I never had any fs corruption whatsoever, just those annoying
messages.

I'll be happy to provide any additional information.
Please Cc: me, as I can't handle lkml traffic.

Best regards,
