Hi all - Kernel Opps on PowerPC

Hello all,

We recently switched to kernel 2.4.10 from kernel 2.4.4, and in doing
so also added the EXT3 patch 2.4-0.9.10-2410.  

Everything seems to work great, however I have been able to reproduce
a crash over and over again.

Here it is:


mke2fs -j /dev/hda2
mount /dev/hda2 /mnt

About 75% of the time, mount will result in a kernel Oops, the crash
seems to be about something in journal_update_superblock()...

If I put a small delay, of any kind, in bewteen the mke2fs and
the mount, all things are OK.

Is this another imfamous bug created by the separation of the
Page and Buffer cache in 2.4.10?

Just wanted to report it...

Here is the PowerPC Opps, don't know if it'll tell you any
more or not...
