Description of problem:
e2fsprogs-1.41.5 has necessary bug fixes for ext4, and needs to be upgrade to.
Comment 1 Nathan G. Grennan 2009-05-14 22:38:46 EDT
  Here is the text from upstream about the exact issue I ran into with 1.41.4's fsck that 1.41.5's fsck fixes.

Debugfs can now set i_file_acl_high via the set_inodes_field command, and print a 64-bit file acl. This is useful for debugging filesystem corruptions where the high bits of i_file_acl_high are set. E2fsck will detect and fix non-zero i_file_acl_high on 32-bit filesystems since some Linux kernel versions pay attention to this field even when they shouldn't.

So, this is the upstream fix:


and I think it's a good idea to pull this back pre-F11 so that repair disks are more robust ....

Ok, building in 1.41.4-9.fc11

I'll petition the release folks to include it.

1.41.4-9.fc11 is tagged for F11
