    Subject[patch] linux likes to kill bad inodes

    I had a temporary disk failure (played with acpi too much). What
    happened was that disk was not able to do anything for five minutes
    or so. When disk recovered, linux happily overwrote all inodes it
    could not read while disk was down with zeros -> massive disk

    Solution is not to write bad inodes back to disk.

    [Thanx to Jan Kara]
