Subject: ext3 aborts journal

Hi all,

(please Cc)

just a few minutes ago my laptop told me:

[ 4759.267418] __log_wait_for_space: no transactions
[ 4759.267428] Aborting journal on device sda3.
[ 4759.267469] ext3_abort called.
[ 4759.267474] EXT3-fs error (device sda3): ext3_journal_start_sb: Detected aborted journal
[ 4759.267481] Remounting filesystem read-only
[ 4759.267727] journal commit I/O error
[ 4784.453791] Monitor-Mwait will be used to enter C-2 state

That made me a bit nervous. It is with kernel 2.6.28-rc3, now I rebooted
in to -rc4.

Any comments or explanations? Do I have to take any action? Reformat,

Best wishes
