Description Jim Paradis 2005-06-15 16:04:38 EDT
This is the RHEL2.1-ia64 version of Bug 156636:

"Kernel has oopsed several times. Netdump has capture the oops but not a
complete vmcore. The oops below is representative. The changes documented in the
following link are not present in  the RH kernel. I feel the race identified by
Stephen Rothwell involving the checking of whether inode->i_flock is not NULL
and the subseqeunt use of that pointer is a likely explanation for these oopses."

Although this problem has not been reported (to my knowledge) on RHEL2.1-ia64,
the code (and therefore the vulnerability) is exactly the same.
