Re: Panic on 1.2.6: "getnewbuf: locked buf"
:I came across this while doing a large file copy between partitions,but otherwisenot much in particular was going on. Since I was logged in via ssh,I'm not surewhen exactly the panic occurred, only that the cp never returned. Thetarget filemay have been in use by a running program.
:I can provide a copy of the kernel and core if necessary. The trace follows.

I just yesterday hit this exact panic on my own test box and track it
down. I committed a workaround to HEAD yesterday. It will be a while
before it can be MFC'd to 1.2.x, however, because it's a pretty bad hack
and only meant to be temporary until I can fix the root cause.
However, if you want to try to manually patch the workaround into your
own source tree, the commit was to 1.52 of kern/vfs_bio.c:
There are at least three fixes recently put in HEAD that need to be MFC'd
to 1.2.x, but it probably isn't going to go into 1.2 officially until
we release 1.4 around Christmas time.
