I understand filesystem code quite well, and the particular problem (if you would have read the oops) is in the memory management layer. But thanks for your advice.

If you have any suggestions on how I could debug, I'd be willing to try them out.

I was really hoping someone had run into this type of problem in the past and could provide some quick pointers on how I could debug.

Maybe get some consultant that knows Linux filesystem code to fix it for
your company?  I wouldn't expect too much help on a heavily patched
tree that's not publically available.
