Comment 1 Michal Schmidt 2007-03-29 08:02:51 EDT
I've checked the patch proposed in attachment #151181 [details] fixes the bug.
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-03-29 17:46:03 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
release.
Comment 3 Michal Schmidt 2007-04-06 06:04:40 EDT
Update:
The fix is incomplete. I was able to trigger slab corruption with it. Upstream
has fixed it with a series of 4 patches from Hugh Dickins ("holepunch: ...", git
commit 90ed52ebe48181d3c5427b3bd1d24f659e7575ad). These seem to work reliably.
Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-04-17 15:22:11 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Kernel Team for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release, and has moved to bugzilla 
status POST.

in 2.6.18-24.el5
You can download this test kernel from http://people.redhat.com/dzickus/el5
Comment 6 Michal Schmidt 2007-06-22 14:49:37 EDT
I tested 2.6.18-27.el5 and ran the testcase for 6 hours. The bug is fixed.
Comment 8 Mike Gahagan 2007-09-20 11:17:51 EDT
testcase has run overnight on one of my test systems, no issues so far. 
Comment 9 Dave Fogarty 2007-09-28 19:56:06 EDT
What is the status of this bug?  Is an official RHEL5 kernel available?  We are
actually seeing this in the wild and would like it to stop.
