EXT3 corruption and sd,sr drivers



Suddenly, this week, following a new kernel for FC8, I'm getting (on booting):

Nov  8 15:49:29 hawksvr5 kernel: Driver 'sd' needs updating - please use bus_type methods

Nov  8 15:49:29 hawksvr5 kernel: Driver 'sr' needs updating - please use bus_type methods

This is the kernel added on 4 Nov:-
Linux hawksvr5.local 2.6.26.6-49.fc8 #1 SMP Fri Oct 17 15:59:36 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I strongly suspect it has something to do with alarming corruption of EXT3 directories, in one case the parent of userspaces, scattering their 80 GB contents to the four winds (or at least lost+found)!

Corrupted  directory entries look like this:-

-????????? ? ?    ?        ?            ? bd1931574.log
-????????? ? ?    ?        ?            ? bd321925.log
-????????? ? ?    ?        ?            ? bd3435480.log
-????????? ? ?    ?        ?            ? bd5221063.log
-????????? ? ?    ?        ?            ? bd52302.log
-????????? ? ?    ?        ?            ? bd5623590.log
-????????? ? ?    ?        ?            ? bd605128.log

Is anyone else getting this?
