Subject: CVE request: kernel: gfs2: rename cases kernel panic

The problem was in the way the gfs2 directory code was trying to re-use
sentinel directory entries. A local, unprivileged user on a gfs2 mounted 
directory can trigger this issue, resulting in a NULL pointer dereference.

Introduced in upstream commit 71b86f56 (v2.6.19-rc1), and fixed in 
commit 728a756b.

Thanks, Eugene
