SubjectRE: [Bug 26242] New: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null)
A similar bug has been reported by Kenneth Lakin [kennethlakin@gmail.com] last week. It's related to my check-in (git commit 914ee295af418e936ec20a08c1663eaabe4cd07a). I am looking into it now.

I found one suspicious code in prepage_pages (fs/btrfs/file.c):

start_pos = pos & ~((u64)root->sectorsize - 1);
last_pos = ((u64)index + num_pages) << PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT;

root->sectorsize is used at first, but PAGE_SIZE is used after it. Do we assume these two values are always the same?

Bugzilla's habit of wordwrapping oops traces is fantastically
irritating. Please use attachments to avoid this.

Either Peter's new kmap_atomic() stuff blew up or BTRFS is playing
around with a NULL page*. I'd wager on the latter.

Thanks, I'll ask Rafael and Maciej to track this as a 2.6.36->2.6.37
regression.
