Bug#466933: Debian-arm: kernel BUG at fs/inode.c:250!
thank you very much for looking into my problem.

I'll be happy to try that, but since I am not familiar with Debian, could
you please answer a few questions beforehand:
1) Does the kernel you recommend contain all the necessary hardware
drivers/microcode for the NSLU2? I remember there being a problem with the
current etch distribution requiring to use an "unofficial" image
containing proprietary Intel microcode.
2) Could there be problems with upgrading packages in my etch-based system
via apt when I have such a mixed installation?
3) How do I reverse the upgrade, i.e. install the backup of the flash
content in case there are problems?
