Corruption on disk.  Undiagnosable without more info --- it could be
hardware or software.

That's a core driver layer bug which we found recently, but it's
too close to 2.4.20 to include the fix.  Basically, on an
out-of-bounds IO the ll_rw_block code was clearing most of the bits in
the buffer_head state, leading to the above assert failure when ext3
found its critical metadata had been corrupted.

Patch is below, I'll send it to Marcelo for 2.4.21-pre.
