It didn't get there for the segfault case, gets there for local file
delete

After:
grant@sempro:~$ dmesg >dmesg
grant@sempro:~$ rm dmesg

Jun 19 08:49:17 sempro kernel: nd.dentry->d_inode = f73f4b80

After:
grant@sempro:~$ dmesg >/home/share/dmesg-test
grant@sempro:~$ rm /home/share/dmesg-test
Segmentation fault

Nothing reported by debug or syslog, oops in messages.

Cheers,
Grant.
