Subject: kerneloops.org: 2.6.26-rc possible regression in ext3

In the kerneloops.org stats, a new oops is rapidly climbing the charts.
The oops is a page fault in the ext3 "do_slit" function, and the first
report of it was with 2.6.26-rc6-git3.

It happens with various applications; the backtraces are at:

http://www.kerneloops.org/search.php?search=do_split

but are generally of this pattern:

*do_split
ext3_add_entry
ext3_rename
vfs_rename
... <various paths into vfs_rename> ...

or

*do_split
? add_dirent_to_buf
ext3_add_entry
ext3_new_inode
ext3_add_nondir
ext3_create
vfs_create
....


did we change anything in ext3 this cycle?
