Under some circumstances, a locking bug could have caused an online ext3 file system resize to deadlock, which may have, in turn, caused the file system or the entire system to become unresponsive. In either case, a reboot was required after the deadlock. With this update, using resize2fs to perform an online resize of an ext3 file system works as expected.
