Bug#567204: linux-image-686-bigmem: serious filesystem corruption with bigmem kernels



Package: linux-image-686-bigmem
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

my system had serious filesystem corruption with several -bigmem
kernel in the past (from 2.6.28 to 2.6.32). 

git first discovered the problem because it complained about corruption
in the repo. a filesystem check found lots of double allocated blocks
and other problems.

i use a ext3 filesystem. i first thought its related to suspend/resume
so i didn't suspend anymore - file corruption still occured. so i
switched from a -bigmem kernel to a normal kernel with same version
and even after heavy usage (cross compile openwrt) no corruption was
found.

for sure i can't guarantee that this isn't related to some hardware
fault like broken ram or the like but i checked ram with memtest86+.

please adjust Severity and/or Justification if i choosed that wrong.
