Default Bug#485464: linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64: Memory and file corruption after running for few days

Package: linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64
Severity: critical
Justification: causes serious data loss


There seems to be a major memory/file corruption issue in 2.6.25.

I have tried running it after my system had been running on 2.6.24-1-amd64
for quite some time without any issues, but after a few days various
programs would start to dump core spontaneously.

Messages in the log showed this:

Jun 1 17:03:42 deepthought kernel: [161459.115199] clamscan[17219]

libclamav.so.4.0.1[7f9fa51a0000+8b000]

I also noticed file and filesystem corruption starting to pop up in
various places.

Eg. an 'apt-get update' would generate a package file wth various parts
corrupted.

This is on a twin dual-core Xeon machine with 4Gb of RAM and using the
AMD64 version.

I also tried the 32-bit 2.6.25 version under a KVM virtual machine, but
it also crashed after a few days of runing.

Since switching back to 2.6.24 the system is stable once more and also
the virtual machine in the KVM works fine with a 2.6.24.

No other changes were made to the system. Just purge 2.6.25, reboot into
2.6.24 and it's OK.
