the inode was probably corrupted, the kernel seems to think the
immutable or append only bit is set. 

try chattr -ia admin.ISM  then rm -f admin.ISM

and if that fails use debugfs.

the inode says they are device special files, which is most likely
rubbish, they inode was probably corrupted is all.  you cannot use
MAKEDEV to remove them since its just a shell script using the same
commands you would use to remove such files: rm
