Hi list,

I was moving and deleting some files between two of my ext4 partitions
when it suddenly crashed and dropped me into an kernel oops screen
(below). I'm using ext4 on kernel 3.5.1 (Arch Linux). Both likely
suspect file systems are stored on LVM2, mounted with
data=writeback,errors=remount-ro,noatime

EXT4-fs (sda3): mounted filesystem with writeback data mode. Opts: (null)
EXT4-fs (dm-1): mounted filesystem with writeback data mode. Opts:
errors=remount-ro
EXT4-fs (dm-0): mounted filesystem with writeback data mode. Opts:
errors=remount-ro

I can't be bothered to transcribe all those 64-bit pointer values, but
here's the human-readable parts (screen shot links below):

Taint flag C is caused by the staging r8712u driver (Realtek USB Wi-Fi
adapter). But I wasn't even using it today, so I doubt that had
anything to do with it.
