Please try to reproduce this on the latest released kernel (2.4.21-32.0.1.EL),
which was released a week ago in advisory RHSA-2005:472.  Let us know whether
the problem still exists.  If so, please provide a reproducer.  Thanks.

Comment 3 Chris Naude 2005-06-03 20:53:51 UTC
We just had another panic on one of the boxes using the new kernel.
Unfortunately netdump failed and we couldnt get a screenshot. I reconfigured
netdump so that it hopefully collects the next panic dump. This time it was
caused it by umount. I'll post the next panic when it happens again.

Comment 4 Larry Woodman 2005-06-17 14:06:14 UTC
We have seen panics in d_rehash() that were fixed by the clear_pte patch. 
Please grab the latest RHEL3-U5 security errata kernel and run that.  I'm pretty
certain that this new kernel will fix this problem.
