    SubjectRe: Is there some bug in ext3 in 2.4.25?


    This sounds like memory corruption (which could be caused by a misbehaving
    driver or by flaky hardware) because transaction->t_ilist is not used at
    all by the kernel code. Did this box run stable with other kernels?

    I found a similar report from Michelle (CCed), which can be found at:

    Searching a bit more, I found another message from Michelle with
    topic "[SOLVED] Kernel-Bug (at checkpoint.c 587)"

    Unfortunately the said message is in German, which I can't understand.
    Michelle, can you clarify it for me?

    Stephen, Andrew, any idea how can transaction->t_ilist become not NULL?

    One more thing - it has happened when /var got full.
