SubjectRe: Apparent serious progressive ext4 data corruption bug in 3.6.3 (and other stable branches?)
Date
[nfs people purged from Cc]

On 27 Oct 2012, Theodore Ts'o verbalised:

?! it's turned on for me, and though I use weird mount options I don't
use that one:

/dev/main/var /var ext4 defaults,nobarrier,usrquota,grpquota,nosuid,nodev,relatime,journal_async_commit,commit=30,user_xattr,acl 1 2
Default mount options: (none)
/dev/mapper/main-var /var ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,journal_checksum,journal_async_commit,nobarrier,quota,usrquota,grpquota,commit=30,stripe=16,data=ordered,usrquota,grpquota 0 0

...

Ah! it's turned on by journal_async_commit. OK, that alone argues
against use of journal_async_commit, tested or not, and I'd not have
turned it on if I'd noticed that.

(So, the combinations I'll be trying for effect on this bug are:

journal_async_commit (as now)
journal_checksum
none

Technically to investigate all possibilities we should try
journal_async_commit,no_journal_checksum, but this seems so unlikely to
have ever been tested by anyone that it's not worth looking into...)
