Description Misha Labjuk 2014-08-24 13:03:41 UTC
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.
Comment 2 Thomas Will 2014-08-26 19:07:28 UTC
Same to me. I can confirm this on 3 different amd64 machines.

the specific fix for this specific issue is probably the latter of the following two:

Jan Kara (1):

3.16.2: no changes in fs/reisefs

Let people loss more data, hate reiserfs and go to test btrfs :)
Comment 9 Alexander Bezrukov 2014-09-20 12:28:35 UTC
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.
Comment 10 Misha Labjuk 2014-09-21 16:37:29 UTC
fixed in 3.16.3
