[dm-devel] Re: 2.6.24.2: 4KSTACKS + pcdrw + dm + mount -> stack overflow: ide-cd related? dm-related?

I just looked at the source; I forgot `make checkstack' existed.

On this system:

0xc0263e0f pkt_open [vmlinux]:                          556

which is nearly as bad.

(As an aside, I'm surprised I didn't oops when packet-writing as well:

0xc021270d udf_process_sequence [vmlinux]:              692
0xc020f43d udf_add_entry [vmlinux]:                     628

owch. I guess that's called via a shorter call chain...)


I'll try the patch after this series of backups is done :)
