If it runs anyway, that means that ext3 found disk corruption
previously, and recorded the error on the filesystem superblock, so that
on reboot, fsck can see that a full fsck is needed.

Looks like an inode table has been written to the wrong location on
disk: dtype 2 is a directory, but kernel.h should most definitely be a
regular file (dtype 1).

There could be any number of reasons for getting such disk corruption
--- driver faults, hardware faults, disk controller faults etc.
