EXT4, OEL 5.5, Kernel 2.6.18 => kernel panic

Ok, not bleeding edge, but it made my day a bit less sunnier: I was wondering why my shiny Linux server running OEL 5.5 was not coming back to live ...

Well, kernel panic due to mounting the ext4. Tried it manually, same result. Mounting the same device formatted with ext3 doesn't trigger the same issue.

As it's an old kernel, I'll just let it die peacefully.
