I have got a crash on an 8 processor ia64 machine with the kernel 2.6.18.8:

Here is the beginning of rb_insert_color():

void rb_insert_color(struct rb_node *node, struct rb_root *root)
{
        struct rb_node *parent, *gparent;

        while ((parent = rb_parent(node)) && rb_is_red(parent)) {
                gparent = rb_parent(parent);
                if (parent == gparent->rb_left) {

When it crashes, I've got the following nodes:

p/x *((struct rb_node *) 0xe0000004acb19448)    // node
{
  rb_parent_color = 0xe0000002799a5908,
  rb_right = 0x0,
  rb_left = 0x0
}
p/x *((struct rb_node *) 0xe0000002799a5908)    // parent = rb_parent(node)
{
  rb_parent_color = 0x0,
  rb_right = 0x0,
  rb_left = 0xa000000100650000			// seems to be valid
}

Note that "node" is not necessarily the same as the argument of
rb_insert_color() was.

gparent = rb_parent(parent) is NULL, and the kernel obviously traps
at if (parent == gparent->rb_left).

Does the algorithm guarantee that if a node is red, it must have a parent?
I guess yes.
(I have not seen any modification in rb_insert_color() since my 2.6.18.8.)

Is mutex_lock(&inode->i_mutex) in vfs_readdir() enough to protect the tree?
I guess yes.

I have got no idea how it can happen.
Has something been corrected since?
