This seems to have something to do with O_DIRECT not getting turned off
for ext3.  in the kernel you tested, we removed the global O_DIRECT disable,
and disabled it at the filesystem level - but only for filesystems which
can even -DO- O_DIRECT.  Since ext3 can't do O_DIRECT, I did not disable the
flag in ext3_open_file().

Adding this line:

        filp->f_flags &= ~O_DIRECT;

to the top of ext3_open_file() fixes it for a machine where your rpm database
is on ext3.

Knut - What filesystem type is on your root fs?
