    SubjectXFS strangeness, xfs_db out of memory

    I was testing a tiny script on top of xfs_fsr to show fragmentation and the
    resultss of defragmentation. As a result of fine tuning the output I ran the
    script repeatedly and suddenly got error from find (unknown error 999 if my
    memory serves me. It scrolled off the screen).

    The logs show this.
    Oct 24 08:06:50 xine kernel: hda: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x21
    Oct 24 08:07:00 xine kernel: hda: DMA timeout error
    Oct 24 08:07:00 xine kernel: hda: dma timeout error: status=0xd0 { Busy }
    Oct 24 08:07:00 xine kernel:
    Oct 24 08:07:00 xine kernel: hda: DMA disabled
    Oct 24 08:07:00 xine kernel: ide0: reset: success

    How bad is that for XFS?... The error isn't permanent it seems.

    After that xfs_db -r /dev-with-home -c "frag -v" gives me an out-of-memory
    error after a while, consistently.

    xfs_db: out of memory

    The script essentially does this

    xfs_info $dev
    xfs_db -r $dev -c "frag -v"
    find $mountp
    xfs_fsr -v

    Program versions
    kernel is (Mandrake 10.1 Community edition)

    xfs_repair had lots of comments after this, but went through.
