Subject: Oops with ext4 from 2.6.27-rc3

Hello everyone,

I decided to switch to ext4 today. My kernel is 2.6.27-rc3 with some
additional patches, but none to the ext4 code. Here is my system setup:

* /dev/sda3 is encrypted with LUKS/device-mapper
* lvm2 on the encrypted partition
* two logical volumes with ext4 inside the lvm2

The ext4 filesystems have been converted from ext3 using this command:

$ tune2fs -O extents -E test_fs /dev/mapper/<device>

After mounting the partitions and logging in it took half a minute to hang
the system (or at least freeze all applications that access the fs). The
log contains the following:

kernel BUG at fs/ext4/mballoc.c:3963!
