:When unmounting an ntfs partition (XP Pro), my machine locks up. The
:serial debugger spews out lots of neat info that I have no understanding
Ok, I'm getting closer. There are two problems.. first, it looks like
you are loading ntfs as a module. Try building it into the kernel
itself. Second, if it's possible to get a kernel core dump that would
help a huge amount. The stack trace is broken but I can get the correct
trace from a core dump.
Another alternative would be to construct a NTFS partition that
demonstrates the crash that I can then download and mount/umount
via the vn device to reproduce the crash on my side.
There are a lot of holes in the NTFS code, unfortunately. I am still
trying to find a smoking gun.
