Dear all:
I use kernel 2.6.18 and I get the kernel panic as below:

note: pdflush[38] exited with preempt_count 1

my questions are:
1. what does "Not tainted" mean?
2. I grep the kernel and I find the above message comes from do_ade in
unaligned.c, If I guess correctly.
    but from the call trace I cannot find out who call it.
    who and how kernel pass the information to do_ade?
3. as far as i know, inode is the data structure we used to record file.
From what information in the inode I can find out the file name the
writeback_inodes try to write?
appreciate your help,
miloody
