Description Jeremy Katz 2004-09-01 15:40:38 UTC
Doing minimal installs, errors of the following type are seen:
<jeremy> EXT3-fs error (device dm-0): ext3_free_blocks: Free blocks
not in datazone - block = ..., count = 1
<jeremy> then a journal abort, then ro mount

Seen on the following hardware:
* ata_piix
* cciss
* IDE

<2>EXT3-fs error (device dm-0): ext3_free_blocks: Freeing blocks not
in datazone - block = 1852076905, count = 1
<2>EXT3-fs error (device dm-0): ext3_free_blocks: Freeing blocks not
in datazone - block = 1819440227, count = 1

Those block numbers translate to 0x6e647369 and 0x6c727463, which look
like ascii data.  Ugh.  Looking through the online-resize changes to
see if there's anything that looks like a possible culprit.

Comment 3 Stephen Tweedie 2004-09-02 10:40:13 UTC
Brown-paper-bag bug in the online resize code.  Fixed in
kernel-2.6.8-1.541.
