Kernel Ooops probably in conjunction with lvm


I've got a rather strange setup over here with about 6 ext3 partitions, one 50gig lvm partition and one 2 gig software-raid1 partition running under a heavily patched 2.4.10 kernel (various netfilter patches, freeswan, current lvm patch (1.0.1-rc4 and current ext3 patch). Furthermore I have all of those neccessary filesystem tools, so don't tell me to upgrade :-)

The machine was under heavily load (7.89) when the crash happend, with an updatedb, various makes and some tar processes running on the same partiton (lvm). I can reproduce this when bringing the partition on heavy load again (lot's of tar's and find's should do the trick). The oops trace below didn't crash my system only the updatedb find command, but I also had some oops crashing my box completely (it even stopped answering echo request packets!). I didn't figgure out yet how to catch those oops to a floppy or something, so if one of you knows, tell me please, so I can provide some more information.

Anyway, here is one ksymoops output:

ksymoops 2.4.3 on i686 2.4.10.  Options used
     -v /boot/vmlinuz (default)
     -k /proc/ksyms (default)
     -l /proc/modules (default)
     -o /lib/modules/2.4.10/ (default)
     -m /boot/System.map (default)

Warning: You did not tell me where to find symbol information.  I will
assume that the log matches the kernel and modules that are running
right now and I'll use the default options above for symbol resolution.
If the current kernel and/or modules do not match the log, you can get
more accurate output by telling me the kernel version and where to find
map, modules, ksyms etc.  ksymoops -h explains the options.

3 warnings and 1 error issued.  Results may not be reliable.

Yes, /boot/vmlinuz *is* a valid kernel file and yes I also tried /usr/src/linux/vmlinux, same results.

The crashes started yesterday, the day when I upgraded my system from 2.4.8 to 2.4.10. I was using lvm patch 1.0.1-rc1 then, and switched to 1.0.1-rc4 now. I'm not really sure who's fault it is, but since there were some debug statements about ext3 in the oops message, I thought to sent it here first.

I hope you can use this information, if something's missing, tell me please, I'm on list.
