from the just missed rc4 department:
I recieved this BUG last night on my laptop and it was shortly
followed by a warning from the kernel. I doubt that I can reproduce
this. It happened under a light load. I was doing some emailing
using thunderbird (er.... icedove.....). let me know if there's
anything I can do to help debug or if there's more info I can get
that would help you figure out what went wrong.

Which filesystems had been mounted? That looks like a stray pointer
to struct inode (i.e. outliving the inode eviction on final iput());
might be the one fixed by commit 50338b889dc504c69e0cb316ac92d1b9e51f3c8a,
might be something else...

I'm leaning towards might be something else. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that 50338b889dc504c69e0cb316ac92d1b9e51f3c8a was included in rc3.
