SubjectEXT4 ENOSPC Bug
Hi Ted, Hi Andreas, hi all,

On a testsystem (spare laptop) with ext4 as root filesystem sometimes the
system starts to return ENOSPC to all write/create syscalls.
Sometimes the system runs without problems, at other times it starts having
problems soon after boot.
A reboot resolves the problem temporarily.

I don't see a specific usage triggering the problem.

Deleting some files sometimes allows the creation (just touch $unused_filename)
of some files, but not many.

Anything I can do to help you to debug the problem?


Kernel is: 2.6.28-rc6-andres-00007-ged31348
