Well , what kind of file is this ? Is it a normal file or some device 
file , or symobolic link etc ...?
Can you send me the 'dmesg' output for this error (if there is any) ?
FYI , I have enabled some debugging messages in this patch , so you 
should be getting a lot
of debugging messages in 'dmesg' .

Any other input on this problem is welcome.
