Description of problem:
Recently we switched to Redhat AS 2.1 (before using 7.2). Our larger
disks contain the reiserfs filesystem, however files larger than 2.0G are not
reported properly anymore when executing the command "du", but the diskspace
keeps on shrinking (with df), killing the command that fills the diskspace
fails. Only a hard reboot helps.
Recompilation of the kernel helped in previous versions (redhat 7.2), but we
didn't try that yet.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a tar file larger than 2.0G on a reiserfs filesystem
Actual Results: When 2.0G is reached, file doesn't seem to grow, but df sees
less diskspace, only a hard reboot will kill the process
Expected Results: Grow above 2.0G
Recompilation of the kernel fixed the problem with previous redhat releases (7.2)
