I'll send it in private mail.

Yes. I had several filesystem corruption with 2.4.19. I tried resierfs and xfs
(latest cvs xfs patch). With 2.4.18 I've never got this (xfs Release 1.1),
nor with previous (eg. 2.4.17) kernels. So I don't want to use 2.4.19.
I can't use ext2 or ext2, because ext2 has no journal, ext3 cannot be
resized runtime.
I had the above problems with or without RSBAC, so it's not related to it.
And it seems to be reproducable, but I hadn't got enough time to test it.
If you're interested, the main kernel config options:
p2, p3 or p4 cpu, IDE block device with pIIx support, freeswan patch with
almost all options enabled, module support turned off, ext2, ext3 and
reiserfs in kernel, raid1 in kernel, lvm in kernel. root on partition, all
others on lvm. mostly root corrupted after several hours of work. after
reboot the system randomly hangs while mounting filesystems.
The same with xfs patch, the addition is xfs (dmapi, acl, quota) in kernel.

I think I should have been sent it to the kernel list... maybe next time :)
