OK, got it. Applied and compiled OK now. But I was trying to reproduce
this one first without the patch and creating a similar or even bigger
workload on the box: well, the "box" is a netbook (1 GB RAM, 1.6GHz Atom)
and right now there are running 4 instances of bonnie++, 1 tar, 1
tiobench, 1 rsync all reading and writing from/to the same XFS partition
as in my initial report, where only 1 rsync operation was in progress -
which usually creates quite a lot I/O by itself, but I though I should
hammer on the box a bit more to trigger this. Load is now at 13, far
higher than it was yesterday, but no BUG or any sign of instability. (Hm,
this is usually a good thing, right?)
So, yes - I could now boot again with the fix applied, but I'm not sure
what to report then, as it's not visible that something would be "fixed".
