Personally i found 2.4.5 to be  very very bad - machine didn't even manage
to bootup.

Have you used kernel-source package and compiled ? or have you used binaries
only ?
If it's the first case - gcc-2.95 series and early 2.96's were known to
broke xfs kernels - xfs developers recommend to use kgcc aka egcs-1.1.2 aka
gcc-2.91.66. So if you compiles with 2.9{5,6} try to use egcs and check if
problem remains.

I believe that feeding that "BUG" output to ksymoops program (see
manual) and sending results to the list would be a good thing to do.

You may also try to use cvs kernel which is 2.4.11-pre6 or patched 2.4.10
with patches from ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/download/patches and see
if the problem persists.

I have a note to linux-xfs developers: don't you think that it would be
a good step to provide  2.4.10 kernel rpms for 1.0.1 release ? or maybe
the testing it received is still not sufficient ?
