    SubjectEXT2 data corruption 2.4.17-pre2

    Al Viro,

    I am seeing subtle data corruption of inode data blocks on ext2
    with 2.4.17-pre1/2. Large files being untarred over and over
    and over again seem to trigger it, but it's hard to reproduce.
    (i.e. I am building patches against several kernel trees).

    I have gotten it to happen twice. In both cases, I get a CRC
    error in a tar.gz and a message "skipping to next tar header"
    furing this error. The data is totally corrupted in the tar.gz
    when this problem shows up. It takes **HOURS** of heavy
    untarring/diffing/untarring to make it show up.
