Description of problem:
I got this kernel (2.4.5-0.4) message after boot.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
I'm often testing new packages from rawhide and after compiling this 
kernel (2.4.5-0.4) I seeems this message twice in 3 days (cca 5x reboot), 
always at end of booting.

This bug is not reproduceable.

Actual Results:  After this message was mgetty dead and I cannot login. I 
must use emergency magic sysrq for sync + reboot.

Expected Results:  IMHO patch into kernel source for repair cache 
management ?

Additional info:

Kernel is compiled with DEBUG option by gcc-g77-2.96-85 compiler, used was 
glibc-2.2.3-11 library. Optimalization for PIII. 

HW - Microstar6163Pro (chipset Intel 440BX), 512 MB RAM, P III 550.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-06-27 13:25:44 UTC
Any special modules/drivers loaded ?
lsmod and lspci output would help here, if others report the same,
we can then find the "common" ones.....
