Perhaps this is useful: for myself, I found that when I started using
2.6.37rc3 that postgresql starting having a *lot* of problems with
corruption. Specifically, I noted zeroed pages, corruption in headers,
all sorts of stuff on /newly created/ tables, especially during index
creation. I had a fairly high hit rate of failure. I backed off to and have *zero* problems (in fact, prior to 2.6.37rc3, I had
never had a corruption issue with postgresql). I ran on 2.6.36 for a
few weeks as well, without issue.

I am using kcrypt with lvm on top of that, and ext4 on top of that.
