LXer: There Might Be Another EXT4 Corruption Bug

Published at LXer:

It was only days ago that an EXT4 file-system corruption bug affected the stable Linux kernel, which was finally patched yesterday. Now though it looks like there may be another EXT4 corruption bug affecting the stable kernel...

I wonder how many more bugs there are. Well, at least they will fix them eventually.

Looks like nothing to worry about.
Filesystem corruption after shutdown with a clean standard installation. 100% confirmation. 100% reproducable.

But I guess it's not ext4 related. It's a dbus/networking problem with the shutdown scripts. However nobody fixed it. Though it was still reported. Busy filesystem, busy scripts, unclean shutdown. Everytime. ~Christian Niemeyer
No one else has complained or noticed up until now, because other distro's apparently are capable of doing a clean shutdown allowing the file system to be unmounted cleanly. Ubuntu, unfortunately, is incapable of reliably doing a clean shutdown even when users request it, which is why Ubuntu users are seeing this behavior much more frequently, and apparently some people have panicked as a result. Sigh.... ~Theodore Ts'o
