SubjectRe: EXT3 - freeze ups during disk writes
ahhhh... woops... every official kernel since ext3 made it into the 
official tree, 2.4.14 if memory serves. I'm using gcc 2.95.3. And to
clarify the bug, say on a large disk write, the pause isn't constant,
it just pauses for a second every few seconds during the write. For
smaller writes, it will pause only once, I assume while performing the
actual write to disk.
