Hmm ... I'm don't think so ... maybe the problem is triggered by the
changes in fs/buffer.c but these changes are not the cause for the problem.

We heave at S.u.S.E. some support mails and support phone calls for 2.0.25
and 2.0.29 with the same problems now often found in 2.0.30. Maybe some
of the problems are caused by broken or misconfigured hardware ... but
the rest of these phenomenons?
