We are still investigating, but there seems to be a major security problem
in at least some versions of reiserfs. Since reiserfs is shipped with
newer versions of SuSE Linux and the problem is too easy to reproduce and
VERY dangerous I think alerting people to this problem is in order.
Sorry, a quick attempt at reproducing on 2.2.17 and 2.2.19 kernels did not
cause an oops. Could you please send me a decoded version of the oops to
help track things down?
