Subject[PATCH] Re: reiserfs: still problems with tail conversion

Hi guys,

This patch should take care of the other cause for null bytes
in small files. It has been through a few hours of testing,
with some of the usual load programs + Erik's code concurrently.

I'll let things run overnight to try and find more bugs. The
patch is against 2.4.2, and does a few things:

don't dirty the direct->indirect target until all direct items
have been copied in. Before it was dirtied for each direct item.

make the target up to date before dirtying (it was done after).

don't try to zero the unused part of the target until all bytes
have been copied. This was the big bug, it was zeroing previously
copied bytes.

Any testing on non-production machines would be appreciated,
I'll forward to Linus/Alan once I've gotten more feedback.
