Description Valdis Kletnieks 2005-02-21 22:43:12 EST

How reproducible:
Use 'restore -CV' to verify a dump file.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dump -0 -f dump.test /tmp
2. restore -CVf dump.test
Actual results:
Lots of 'error in EA block' messages, and a final (possibly spurious)
'Some files were modified!' message

Expected results:

Ok, reproduced and confirmed. Comparision of EA is broken in all
cases. Extraction of those EA is however not affected.

The fix is a two liner: in restore/tape.c, in the xtrxattr() function,
remove the test on Nflag.

I've updated my EA patch to incorporate this and other changes
(support in-inode EAs when using recent kernels and big inodes,
provided a recent version of e2fsprogs is used), it is available from
dump.sf.net (*). Jindrich, feel free to release a new version
containing this patch if you want to.

Stelian, thanks for the new patch. It's now applied and dump-0.4b39-2
is now built.
