Subject[Bug 1083] New: JFS corrupts file systems on 64bit architectures

Summary: JFS corrupts file systems on 64bit architectures
Kernel Version: 2.6.0test2
Status: NEW
Severity: high

On AMD64 JFS seems to corrupt file systems quickly. I created a JFS
file system, rsync'ed an BKCVS kernel checkout from another box then
did two cvs updates. Result was that several directory inodes in the
kernel tree were unreadable on the next access (always returned EPERM
even for a stat). I did a fsck then, which found some bad inodes and
resulted in a endless lost+found (ls ran out of memory trying to list it)

2.4 JFS still worked. I also got feedback from one user that they are
seeing similar problems on sparc64.
