    I was to upgrade to 3.6.2 but now will wait for 3.7 anyway....it should be fully fixed by then....

    I use ZFS with Linux 3.6.2, so I am unaffected.

    This is probably why, for seemingly no reason at all, my /home partition wouldn't mount yesterday on my desktop; I had to fsck it and fix a bunch of errors. Everything is fine now... phew.

    I had done a few reboots applying updates in Arch Linux, which is likely what triggered the bug (article says several reboots in rapid succession could trigger it, due to journal replaying behavior).

    F16, installed 3.6.2, rebooted a few times since then. It's all ok for now.

    0_o dafuq im on 3.6.2 and rebooted it regurarly yesterday.

    And the fucken thing panicked after a reboot today. (but probably this was not related to this bug).

    I don't think anything got corrupted though.
