Strangely, I have 2.2.17 (TurboLinux patched), on a 1k filesystem and
I have no problems. I have 1k, 2k, and 4k ext2 fs, all OK.

What people who have the problem should be doing is:
> ls -li holed.file # find inode number
10732 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6000000 Nov 29 16:17 holed.file
> du -sk holed.file # see what "stat" thinks
983k holed.file
> debugfs /dev/XXX
debugfs> stats # find out ext2 block size
...
Block size = 1024, fragment size = 1024
...
debugfs> stat <10732> # (with < and >)
Inode: 10732 Type: regular Mode: 0644 Flags: 0x0 Generation:
4048594821
User: 0 Group: 0 Size: 6000000
File ACL: 0 Directory ACL: 0
Links: 1 Blockcount: 1966
^^^^ these are 512-byte blocks, so / 2 for ~kB
they include indirect blocks and such

TOTAL: 983
^^^ these are ext2fs sized blocks, not necessarily kB

If what debugfs says doesn't match du, then it is du/libc/stat that is
broken. If debugfs says the file actually has 6000000 bytes of data,
then it is the filesystem that is broken.
