Re: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000048

Luckily, I seem to have been able to reproduce the bug (after
shrinking the partition down to some hundred MB). Your patch seems to
have fixed it!

Now I get the following, which, I think, is pretty much expected,
since I chopped a large part of the filesystem off:

15:52 root ~ # mount /dev/1/buggy-home test
[  461.137823] NILFS: error searching super root.
mount.nilfs2: Error while mounting /dev/mapper/1-buggy--home on
/root/test: Input/output error

Please, fix the bug in the official kernel sources, too. Your
filesystem proved very useful here for storing documents and other
changeable stuff -- we don't want it get broken unexpectedly. :)

Still, thanks a lot! The things you are doing here are really cool!
