  • Mood:

hurr raidzone

Today: Reiserfs craps out on fileserver trying to free previously freed objects, and kupdated tries to deref a null pointer and oopses. Userland stops, but instead of halting, kernel continues to run other threads, including nfsd, which was apparently completely unaware that anything was amiss.

Writing to a filesystem which has already given up for the day should probably be considered harmful, I think.

Someone somewhere probably thinks that continuing to run after an oops in kupdated is a feature.
