Subject: [Bug 10976] New: Soft lockup on (intentionally) corrupted filesystem

           Summary: Soft lockup on (intentionally) corrupted filesystem
           Product: File System
           Version: 2.5
     KernelVersion: + patches for bug 10882 problems
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
              Tree: Mainline
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: ext3

Distribution: Debian sid (unstable)
Hardware Environment: qemu x86
Software Environment: Minimal Debian sid
Problem Description:

Mounting one of the attached intentionally corrupted ext3 filesystems and
accessing it causes a soft lockup. I believe they probably are the same bug
(both happen in __log_wait_for_space()), but the backtraces vary quite a bit so
I attach two test cases.

My kernel is + three patches posted by Duane Griffin for #10882,
namely (I hope I understand the git terminology right, at least you can grep
lkml archives for these):
  - 6ae4ecf..8019bf2
  - 7712682..bc030f4
  - 0b8cf80..ea0236b

Steps to reproduce:

1. bunzip2 one of the filesystem images
2. mount fs.img /mnt
3. ls /mnt
