Plain ext3 with UTF-8 filenames, no ACLs or Extended Attributes. It was
created with last week's RH rawhide then I moved to 2.5.70, uptime 5
days now.

Should I be worrying about filesystem corruption now?

Unfortunately no. I just noticed that message in dmesg after 5 days of
uptime. Hmm, I just noticed this line within that last post:

 <6>note: updatedb[18515] exited with preempt_count 1

If it happened during updatedb, then it must have been around 22 hours
ago during cron.daily's updatedb. My laptop was completely idle during
that time.
My kernel .config file.
