Hi Heinz,

I've been using this patch since 2.6.37-rc6+ with ext4 and xfs
filesystems and haven't seen any corruptions since then
(ext4 got "fixed" since 2.6.37-rc6, xfs showed no problems from the start)

http://git.eu.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=1449032be17abb69116dbc393f67ceb8bd034f92
(is the actual temporary fix for ext4)

Regards

Matt
