Re: Corrupted inode list

I've found that v2.1.14 is _much_ better than previous versions
with the FAT (and relatives) inode corruption problem, but it is
not yet cured. This of course agrees with the discussion on this.

I've found that heavy VFAT (and hence FAT) activity can still cause
"kernel stack corrupted" in v2.1.14, which seems to be a product of
a corrupted inode list. Or so this is my guess.

At least I've not experienced an OOPS yet (in sync_inodes), as I
frequently did in past versions.

I've not yet tried the last suggested patch that was posted,
but hope to have a chance to.
