Care to open bug report and attach /var/log/messages from the
time os-prober was run? Please do not grep for os-prober, there may be
other interesting messages. You can assign it to me right away.

Sure.

I can attach that, and also the yast logs while the update run. I had to
kill os-prober to let the "yast online update" to continue, it was stuck
there for a long time.

And I can also attach messages log for the much older session, using an
older kernel, not tainted, in case that is an issue.

It depends on what interests you, the kernel oops when xfs tries to
mount it, of the issue of os-prober to try to mount those partitions.

It may also of interest this:

Telcontar:~ # file -s /dev/sda4
/dev/sda4: DOS/MBR boot sector; partition 1 : ID=0x83, start-CHS (0x4c,1,1),
end-CHS (0x3ff,254,63), startsector 63, 31455207 sectors; partition 2 :
ID=0x5, start-CHS (0x3ff,254,63), end-CHS (0x3ff,254,63), startsector
31455270, 20964825 sectors
Telcontar:~ #

'file' does not say it is an extended partition. Nor this is clear:

Telcontar:~ # lsblk /dev/sda
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda 8:0 0 465.8G 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 203.9M 0 part /other/test_a1/boot
├─sda2 8:2 0 196.1M 0 part /boot
├─sda3 8:3 0 196.1M 0 part
├─sda4 8:4 0 1K 0 part



But it is indeed an extended:

Telcontar:~ # fdisk -l /dev/sda

Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
