Just saw an oops on a pe2550 running hampton beta 2 (2.4.18-0.1smp).

Attaching ksymoops output...

Would you prefer us to separate these kernel oops issues by platform?  Or is
attaching oops from different platforms on the same issue ok?

Comment 8 Matt Domsch 2002-03-13 16:07:34 UTC
Since these are the same oops (the same function dereferences NULL+0x18), just 
reproduced on different platforms, I say keep them together, rename the title 
__remove_inode_page NULL dereference.

It will be worth testing this with 2.4.18-0.9 or later.

No kernel oops after 3 days of newburn on a beetle (pe500sc) with beta4

Comment 18 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-08 15:02:51 UTC
Please use 2.4.18-0.16 from now on; it's supposed to have stuff fixed :)

No kernel oops on a 6450 or a 500sc after 24 hours of newburn w/ kernel

Comment 20 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-11 12:47:48 UTC
Tentatively closing
If it happens after more testing please reopen this bug
