Re: Panic in my HEAD

:>     When was the last time you manually fsck'd the filesystems on that
:>     machine?  It's possible (barely) that prior bugs built up some 
:>     corruption which the filesystem just now hit.  
:It was never manually fsck'd before (the box was installed just a few 
:days ago).
:>     If you could also put the dmesg output for that machine up it would
:>     be helpful.
:Here it is:

    Shoot, oh well it was a long shot.  This sort of panic usually
    occurs long after the corruption has occured, and I was hoping that
    the contigmalloc fix I had made on Nov 10th had fixed the last 
    occurance of this sort of bug.  It definitely fixed something since
    DR's test machines are now a lot more stable.  So if the kernel you
    installed on this box is from sources dated before Nov 10th then the
    problem could be that contigmalloc bug, otherwise it's some other bug.

    If you can get a dump it may help, else try to get a dump the next
    time it happens.
