Thanks. This might have been caused by fix-sysfs-reclaim-crash.patch,
which I have now dropped. If you're able to reproduce the crash, please
see if reverting that patch (reproduced below) fixes it.

If it isn't reproducibl, please keep an eye out for problems in next -mm.


From: Maneesh Soni <maneesh@in.ibm.com>

Maybe.

happens without i_mutex. It also nullifies s_dentry just to indicate that
the associated dentry is evicted. sysfs_readdir() access the s_dentry,
and gets the inode number from the associated dentry, if there is one, else
it invokes iunique(). This can create a race situation, and crash while
accessing the dentry/inode in sysfs_readdir().

o The following patch always use i_unique() to get the inode number. This
is ok as sysfs doesnot have permanent inode numbering. It could be slower
but avoids the above mentioned race.

o This also avoids the now unnecessary s_dentry in sysfs_d_iput().
