netdump of panic
Please try to reproduce this on the latest released kernel (2.4.21-32.0.1.EL),
which was released a week ago in advisory RHSA-2005:472. Let us know whether
the problem still exists. If so, please provide a reproducer. Thanks.
We just had another panic on one of the boxes using the new kernel.
Unfortunately netdump failed and we couldnt get a screenshot. I reconfigured
netdump so that it hopefully collects the next panic dump. This time it was
caused it by umount. I'll post the next panic when it happens again.
We have seen panics in d_rehash() that were fixed by the clear_pte patch.
Please grab the latest RHEL3-U5 security errata kernel and run that. I'm pretty
certain that this new kernel will fix this problem.
This bug is filed against RHEL 3, which is in maintenance phase.
