You need to give us more details about the rest of the messages that
appear with the above assertion failure.  That message itself tells
us that something is wrong with the internals of the ext3 code, but
othewise doesn't give us any clue as to what is going wrong, and where.

You need to provide the full oops report (decoded, with stack trace),
and if possible a report of what you were doing at the time this problem
