Bumping this up since there hasn't been any response to the latest question or even to the title of the thread asking about tools or utilities for Linux that could either do "deep cleaning" like "applejack" or that can diagnose issues that would be causing kernel panics in two separate partitions . . . ??????
I can't conclude that it isn't necessary, because both the Linux side and the OSX side were plagued with kernel panics for quite awhile . . . .
