SubjectCoda and Ext3
From
Date
Hi everyone,

The Linux Coda drivers and the ext3 patches don't seem to get along
very well, at least in Linux 2.4.7. I've got a stock 2.4.7 kernel with
a patch applied to the USB drivers (for a sony digital camera; see
http://www.sujal.net/tech/linux/ just a change in unusual_devs.h).

After I applied the ext3 patches from
http://www.uow.edu.au/~andrewm/linux/ext3/ . Basically, when an
application tries to write to a file system mounted via coda, the
application terminates with "Memory Fault" returned to the terminal.
THe file system still thinks it's busy (can't umount).

I'm using the ext3-2.4-0.9.5-247 patch. I have not yet tried a newer
kernel.

THe funny thing is that mounting/unmount works fine as long as I don't
try to write. Also, I can create files via touch or mkdir without
causing problems. The following log snippet shows me mounting then
immediately unmounting the filesystem, then remounting and trying a
write operation (using cp).

Just to let everyone know, I am running my own replacement for venus
(something similar to podfuk/uservfs), and I do have the NVidia drivers
loaded. I was able to recreate this bug without the NVdriver module
loaded, however. Also, I backed out the patches for ext3 and the
problem went away.

THe following messages appear in my syslog:
