Description of problem:

Attempting clean install of fc6t3 on system with existing fc5 x86_64 results in
"Kernel BUG at fs/dcache.c:615" while "searching for existing installation"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fc5 with this kickstart disk partitioning scheme:

part raid.1  --size=132 --ondisk=${d}da --asprimary
part raid.2  --size=132 --ondisk=${d}db --asprimary
part raid.3  --size=132 --ondisk=${d}da --asprimary
part raid.4  --size=132 --ondisk=${d}db --asprimary
part raid.5  --size=1   --ondisk=${d}da  --grow
part raid.6  --size=1   --ondisk=${d}db  --grow
raid /boot  --fstype="ext2" --level=1 --device=md0 raid.1 raid.2
raid /boot2 --fstype="ext2" --level=1 --device=md1 raid.3 raid.4
raid pv.6                   --level=1 --device=md2 raid.5 raid.6
volgroup sys --pesize=32768 pv.6

logvol swap  --fstype=swap --name=swap --vgname=sys --size=2048
logvol /     --fstype=ext3 --name=root --vgname=sys --size=12288
logvol /local --fstype=reiserfs --fsoptions="notail" --name=local --vgname=sys 
--size=1 --grow

2.  Try to install fc6 test3

Actual results:
GUI hang while searching for existing installation.  VT3 (4?) shows kernel bug
error (attached).  Must power off system to reset, though shell on VT2 is
responsive (halt and reboot do neither).

Expected results:
find existing installation...

Additional info:

Opteron dual processor, dual core, Tyan S4881 motherboard, two SATA disks, 32GB ram.

On second thought, this is probably a kernel problem.  Retargeting component to

Dup of 206036, looks like fix is identified in that bug.
