The contrary. It looks like your file system is screwed for some reason.
Make sure your system did a full fsck when it restarted (it probably did
after a kernel panic). Or better still make sure the disk is mounted
read-only and run "e2fsck -c" which will look for bad blocks on your disk
and mark them unusable. The errors are probably a sign of your disk being
about to give out, so you may want to consider getting a new one if this
happens again.
