Hi ya,
I've got fairly repeatable panic() while extracting a tar archive
on ext2fs partition. The panic message is:
	lockmgr: pid YYY not exclusive lock holder XXX unlocking
I have core dump and -g version of kernel in question and I'll dig
into it a bit more now, just want to warn others.

It's happening on -current with sources from about two weeks ago.
I didn't noticed any ext2fs specific fixes in sources, but I may be
wrong ...
Does it sound familiar for anyone ?

It is better never to have been born.  But who among us has such luck?
One in a million, perhaps.
