Description Richard W.M. Jones 2012-03-30 07:05:44 EDT
Description of problem:

febootstrap uses ext2fs as a library to build ext2 filesystems.
Since the latest version in Fedora, febootstrap now segfaults
when calling ext2_mkdir.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

febootstrap-supermin-helper --verbose -f ext2 /usr/lib64/guestfs/supermin.d x86_64 /tmp/kernel /tmp/initrd /tmp/root
Actual results:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

(gdb) print *bitmap
$2 = {magic = 2133571337, fs = 0x70b780, bitmap_ops = 0x4000000000001,

Notice that bitmap->bitmap_ops seems bogus.
Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2012-03-30 09:22:45 EDT
I started a thread on the linux-ext4 mailing list:

I found a workaround (or fix??) and pushed it upstream in
Comment 2 Eric Sandeen 2012-07-06 16:40:00 EDT
Fixed since:

* Mon Apr 09 2012 Eric Sandeen <sandeen@@redhat.com> 1.42.2-4
- Handle 32-bit bitmaps in new find_first_zero functions
