Description of problem:
Kernel paniced on shutdown. Error message copied by hand:
kernel panic - not syncing: fs/proc/generic.c:521: spin_lock
(fs/file_table.c:c034aa10) already locked by fs/file_table.c/204
Caps lock and scroll lock lights were flashing.
magic sysreq didn't do anything (it was enabled via sysctl). There was
nothing in the logs about the panic, but the sysklogd shutdown message
was present so the oops happened at some point after that.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Hasn't happened before, and this is a desktop which gets shut down daily.
