Subject2.6.18 BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 000,0000a
Hello,


I have a reproducible BUG on my server that occurs whenever disk usage
gets too high / too much swapping occurs (at least I think that is). The
box has one reiserfs filesystem of about 187GB size, the disk is on an
Epia 5000 board, between them is a Promise Ultra 100 PCI IDE controller
card.


Any hints about how to resolve this problem are very welcome.


The trace from the serial console:
