BUG in fs/ext3/dir.c



Hello

When using readdir() on a directory with many files or long file names
it can happen that it returns the same file name twice. Attached is
a program that demonstrates this.

I have traced this problem back to linux-2.6.10-rc1-bk18 and all kernels
after this one are effected. linux-2.6.10-rc1-bk17 is still okay. If I
reverse the following patch in linux-2.6.10-rc1-bk18, readdir() works
again correctly:
