Ahh, that probably explains it. I didn't realize there was such a thing.

I am doing random-corruption tests, so it is quite possible that this
bit gets set anywhere along the road...

But even so, is it correct that the kernel should crash? It seems
quite possible that error behaviour can change (like this) even with
"normal" corruption, e.g. outside my test scripts.

But I cannot even run dumpe2fs on my image (even with -f switch):

dumpe2fs: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open disk


"The animistic metaphor of the bug that maliciously sneaked in while
the programmer was not looking is intellectually dishonest as it
disguises that the error is the programmer's own creation."
