So the corruption is always a truncation, correct?

Did you notice the problem with ext4 w/o the patch queue? I have a
suspicion that the problem may have been introduced by the delayed
allocation code, but I don't have hard evidence. When you rerun your
benchmark (which seems to be the closest thing we have to a
reproduction case), it would be interesting to know if the problem
goes away with -o nodelalloc (again, it would localize where we need
to look).

Thanks, regards,
