Hi Daniel,

On 2.6.20-rc6-mm3 and 2.6.20-mm1, i get an OOPS when using the minix 3
file system. I enclose the dmesg and the .config to that mail.

Here are the steps to reproduce this oops (they involve using qemu to
run Minix 3)
- First create a 2GB image using
qemu-img create minix.img 2G
(Please note that this seem to be producing an eroneous image)
- Then launch Minix inside qemu to make a minix partition on this
image using mkfs on the corresponding device.
- Mount the image on loopback using
mount -t minix -o loop minix.img /mnt/qemu/
- issue a "df" command on /mnt/qemu

Well, a glance at your dmesg doesn' show that a minix partition was
recognized. Otherwise it would sow it. So you have not such a
partition within your drives.

You are using an emulator to run minix. You will have the same problem
if you run minix2 or minix3 through an emulator and not from a real
minix2 or minix3 partition.
