kernel- is in updates-testing with this fix applied.

You can update with:

 # yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update kernel
Comment 2 Rolf Fokkens 2007-11-28 14:23:33 EST
Problem seems to be solved this way.
Comment 3 Ade Rixon 2007-11-30 02:53:13 EST
The bug title is slightly misleading; I'm seeing this with NFS v3 as well. It
affects LightZone 2.4 for Linux when exporting TIFF files (the files are
unreadable by libtiff-enabled applications due to "zero scanline size").
Comment 4 Alexandre Oliva 2007-12-03 00:15:50 EST
Any idea of how much longer this data-corruption problem explicitly fixed in the
Fedora 8 kernel (on Nov 7), commonly exercised by backup programs (rsync -S) on
commonly-used filesystem types (nfs) going to remain in the most up-to-date
stable kernel available for Fedora 7?
Comment 5 Chuck Ebbert 2007-12-04 13:57:26 EST is being released ASAP.
It has been available in updates-testing for over a week...
