Description Dave Evans 1994-10-07 03:30:01 UTC
When unmounting an msdos filesystem, the system will reset exactly as if
the reset button had been pressed.  No core-dumps or panics are produced.
I'm using an msdos lkm, but I have also noticed the problem when msdos-fs
was compiled into the kernel.  I have taken care to ensure the lkm is
compiled in step with the kernel.


Fixed by Martin Renters - first flush dirty blocks.
mount an msdos filesystem.
work on it for a while.
unmount it, and FOOF! system blown away.

Doesn't always happen.

Running chkdsk under msdos show no evidence, before or afterwards, of any
filesystem corruption

MSDOS version is 4.01
