Hey All,

=09Is anyone else having a problem with SuSE 8.1 boxes locking hard in li=
bafs? =20
I keep getting it and looking at lcrash logs and ksymoops it's always due=
a call to afs_linux_readdir() referencing a page in virtual memory which=20
doesn't seem to exist.  I'm not entirely sure which bit of=20
afs_linux_readdir() is producing the code though:

Code;  cf8c454b <[libafs-2.4.19-4GB]afs_linux_readdir+233/560>   <=3D=3D=3D=
   0:   f2 ae                     repnz scas %es:(%edi),%al   <=3D=3D=3D=3D=

=09No idea which bit of afs_linux_readdir() is generating that code thoug=

=09Anyone got any ideas?  If anyone wants to tell me how to get some slig=
more useful information let me know :)
