    No, our policy is strictly in sync with and reflective of that of the rest of
    the linux-kernel. Since the ac series has a different policy, we can be
    different in regards to the ac series.

    And I don't begin to comprehend your not sending in the lost disk space after
    crash bug fix (I assume it is what you mean when you refer to lost files after a
    crash, because I know of no lost files after a crash bug, please phrase things
    more carefully), and it really annoys me and the users, frankly. Why you
    consider that a feature is beyond me.

    monstr, could you fix it please and send the fix in? We can't wait for Chris to
    send it in any longer.

    Thx,

    Hans
