Re: FS corruption? bogus i_mode

ROFL, this really is the best setup I've read about on ext3-users ;)

But this one time when the FS was corrupted i had to re-install the full root file system as it had corrupted the bin directory itself. But i have backed up the data (using dd command) to find out what exactly happened.

So, if this would be reproducible, one could activate the in-kernel debug flags or more specifically JBD_DEBUG or even try kdb[0] to see what's going on. Oh, and when we can see corruption patterns while the system is exposed to your special environment, I'd love to test the patch introducing CONFIG_EXT3_NEUTRON ;)
