This crash happened on one of several systems which I have been running for 
over a year. This crash came out of the blue when the system was updating a 
logfile with a message. It has performed many writes during this time and I 
have never seen this problem before. As far as trying to reproduce the 
problem is concerned. 
Some time ago I used a program to exercise the flash to try and track other 
problems and as I said before I have never seen this oops before. Besides 
performing more flash exercising tests I would not have a clue how I could 
reproduce this. 

So in summary this crash was out of the blue and I suspect that I can not 
easily reproduce it without understanding more about what happened.
