    Currently, mbcache is used only for xattr on ext2/ext3 and reiserfs.
    In other words, only one type of mbcache is used per-filesystem.
    So any problems don't happen without the patch I sent.

    But, for example when someone use mbcache as another purpose on ext3,
    The crash will be caused by using mb_cache_shrink().

    Therefore, I think your patch should not be committed until
    mbcache will be limited to use only type per-filesystem.
