RE: Kernel panic in ext3:dx_probe, help needed

I think these messages are the real cause of the ext3 errors.

Ok, found more information. EL4 sets dir_index for / (cciss/c0d0p6 as we
are installing it). The RedHat provided cciss driver (2.6.14-RH2) has no
problem with that, the latest cciss driver from HP, 2.6.16-6, does.
Turning off dir_index for /, forcing fsck during reboot and everything
is fine.

A device driver should not care about filesystem features, IMHO. Either there are problems with the cciss driver (syslog messages please) or the ext3 fs is corrupted - in which case fsck should be run.

BOFH excuse #115:

your keyboard's space bar is generating spurious keycodes.
