Re: [linux-lvm] reiserfs panic



Wonder if this is the result of something not getting into cvs?  Mid October
Chris fixed a bunch of snapshot problems.  One was with full snapshots...
He posted a fix here, some one else posted an alternate.  Bet neither has 
been put into cvs.  Here is what I am using with 'rc4ish'.  Does it help?

Hi guys,

Here's a repost of the patch that fixes oopsen when snapshots
get full.  Please comment and/or include ;-)

Against 1.0.1rc4, the bug should affect all kernel versions.
