Description Boris Ranto 2013-10-01 13:20:02 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1014308 +++

Description of problem:
Copied from the description of the test case:
inline symlinks are removed from the inode when an extended attributes forces it into being remote symlink. Warning: this test will ASSERT on unpatched DEBUG XFS.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the xfstests test case xfs/298 for xfs fs
2. Check the output

Actual results:
For symlink size 128, the core.nextents is reported to be 1.

Expected results:
The core.nextents is 0.

Additional info:
This seems to have been fixed upstream by [v4] xfs: fix the symbolic link assert in xfs_ifree:
Comment 1 Boris Ranto 2013-10-01 13:32:35 EDT
This is also reproducible in RHEL 6 (kernel-2.6.32-419.el6).
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 21:50:11 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

    xfs: clean up xfs_inactive

Will have to decide how important this one really is.
Comment 6 Eric Sandeen 2014-06-16 23:16:35 EDT
I'm going to close this as WONTFIX for now; it's not a trivial upstream patch application and the bug, as far as we know, is only seen in the xfstest specifically designed to trigger it.

If we get a customer report of the problem, we can re-open & re-examine this bug.
