okay, no problem ...

hmm, you got my config, so that's it from the
kernel side (no modules, no special settings)

nope, have no test system available to test it atm
but I'm using QEMU for a long time now to do kernel
debugging and it would really surprise me if that
was a QEMU bug (it's pretty stable on x86 nowadays,
but you never know)

here is how to reproduce it (with QEMU)

- get qemu 0.8 (or later) 
- get TEST_32M_public2.img.bz2, TEST_256M_empty.img.bz2
- get the kernel QEMU_2.6.17-rc2.config

- build the kernel on x86 for x86 (gcc 3.3.5 here)
- unpack the disk images (bunzip2)
- run qemu like this:

  qemu -nographic -m 256 -snapshot -hda TEST_32M_public2.img -hdc 
TEST_256M_empty.img -kernel 
/path/to/your/linux-2.6.17-rc2/arch/i386/boot/bzImage -append "rw 
root=/dev/hda1"

  (on non x86 use qemu-system-i386 instead)

- then, on the prompt enter:

  # mkfs.xfs -f /dev/hdc1
  # mount /dev/hdc1 /mnt/

- *bang*

you can get all the beforementioned stuff including 
a prebuilt kernel image from here:
