Hello !

I heavily use XFS for an incremental backup server (by using rsync --link-dest 
to create hardlinks to unchanged files), and therefore have about 10 million 
on my TB Harddisk. To remove old versions nightly an "rm -rf" will remove a 
hardlinks/files every night.

After a while I had regular oopses and so I updated the system to make sure its
on a current version.

It is now a SuSE 11.1 64Bit with SuSE's Kernel

The Server is a Quad-Core Intel 64Bit with 8 GB RAM running a 64Bit Linux.
(I have vmware server 2 installed, so those modules can be seen in the kmesg,
but the OOPs happens also without them).

Now sometimes the "rm -rf" Job OOPses the kernel and get stuck (there is no
other measurable IO traffic on that system). The /proc/kmesg gives:

It _always_ gets stuck at the same place in "complete" of xfssyncd, so i dont
think its hardware related.

I also always did a xfs_repair after very OOPS->Reboot, so the filesystem itself
should be consistent.

I initilly used default settings for mkfs.xfs and mount. Now I use different
settings, but get the same OOPs again, it seems to be unrelated.

What do you recommend ? Has this bug already been addressed within the
hundrets of fixes I've seen on the mailing list ? Shall I try a stock 2.6.28
kernel ?

   Thanks in advance !
