    Subjectbug in ext3 htree rename: doesn't delete old name, leaves ino with bad nlink
    I've isolated the problem to rename not removing the old name under some
    circumstances, leaving two names for a file with an nlink of 1. This
    will reliably reproduce the problem for me, under 2.4.19-ac4 and 2.4.19
    (stock) w/ patch-ext3-dxdir-2.4.19-4.

    Generate a new filesystem: this will create htree-bug.fs
    $ sh genfs

    # mkdir m
    # mount -o loop htree-bug.fs m

    $ gcc -o tickle tickle.c
    $ ./tickle m/test
    *** rename("drivers/scsi/psi240i.h", "drivers/scsi/psi240i.h.orig") failure:
    stating drivers/scsi/psi240i.h
    stating drivers/scsi/psi240i.h.orig
    *** rename("drivers/scsi/sun3_scsi.h", "drivers/scsi/sun3_scsi.h.orig") failure:
    stating drivers/scsi/sun3_scsi.h
    stating drivers/scsi/sun3_scsi.h.orig

    # umount m

    $ e2fsck -f htree-bug.fs

    I've put all the bits needed to reproduce the bug (genfs, tickle) at
