Description richts 2018-11-08 17:52:46 UTC
I recently installed the 4.19.1 mainline kernel from the ubuntu kernel team on my Kubuntu 18.10 installation on 2 systems. Both ran 4.19 before that.

After the upgrade I experienced several filesystem corruptions that I had to fix with a live system (actually, I was able to fix the laptop's ext4 from busybox).

1 of the systems is a 9 year old Dell laptop (Studio 1557) with the root fs (ext4) on a SSD. The other machine is a Dell workstation (about 3 years old), also the root filesytem (btrfs) is on a SSD. The workstation uses UEFI boot.

I'm using the mainline kernels for a long time now, and I never had any issues. I still believe that I didn't have any problems in 4.19, but in 4.19.1 they appear pretty quick after login.

Just to mention, both filesystems switched to readonly mode as they discovered the issues. When using the same systems with the distros default kernel (some 4.18 right now) all the problems are gone.

The kernel.log.1 of my dell workstation shows entries like

Comment 2 richts 2018-11-14 18:43:37 UTC
Today I tested the 4.19.2 kernel on the desktop machine (btrfs), the problem happened again after some hours of usual work.
Comment 3 Henrique Rodrigues 2018-11-27 23:57:04 UTC
Could this be the same as 201685?
Comment 4 richts 2018-11-30 10:48:47 UTC
Of course my ext4 problems could be the same as 201685, in that case my btrfs problems would be another issue.
Comment 5 Artem S. Tashkinov 2018-12-05 20:43:35 UTC
It was discovered that bug 201685 may affect any file system since the issue is in the block layer. Please try this patch (after running fsck): https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=201685#c255
Comment 6 richts 2018-12-12 17:37:51 UTC
I upgraded the laptop to 4.20.0-rc6 and the problem seems to be gone. Due to a coincidence, I don't have the other machine anymore, so I can't verify the btrfs part...

Nevertheless, I assume this is a duplicate anyway.
