In 3.16.1 kernel corrupt files in reiserfs filesystem. Data in changed files truncated or have garbage at front. Filesystem is clean and reiserfsck found nothing.
kernel 3.16.0 working without data loss.
kernel 3.16.1 also working on SSD drive but corrupt data on hard drive.
Data corruption detected by gentoo portage system. /usr/portage live in reiserfs partition and updated files have incorrect checksum.
3.16.0 corrupt data too. 3.16.1 truncate short files more aggressive.
Same to me. I can confirm this on 3 different amd64 machines.

3.16.2: no changes in fs/reisefs
Let people loss more data, hate reiserfs and go to test btrfs :)
I can confirm that with 3.16.3 (which contains abovementioned, see comment #4, reiserfs set of patches) the issue went out, I cannot reproduce it anymore.
fixed in 3.16.3
