Subject: Re: ask for help; hash-directory machanism of ext3 cannot work well

Hello, Ted. I think I failed to represent it very well. But many thanks. :-)

What makes me puzzled is there are two entries both  named  "3220" with ino
"3350" were shown under "/mnt" when I "ls  -li  /mnt".
The version of kernel is 2.6.17-1.2142; and e2fsprogs-1.28. 
You know that we can set "s_def_hash_version" to be "DX_HASH_LEAGCY" in
function  "main{}" of mke2fs.c 
But I don't know why the latest version e2fsprogs-1.39 takes "DX_HASH_TEA"
for default. Why "DX_HASH_LEAGCY" cannot be taken for default? Could you
tell me the reason for it? Thanks.  :-)

First of all, what version of e2fsprogs and kernel are you using?n

How did you set the s_def_hash_version?   Were you using debugfs?

And did you turn on the dir_index feature?  

With recent versions of e2fsprogs the dir_index feature is enabled
default, with DX_HASH_TEA as the default.

Huh?  What do you mean by that?  Are you seeing two entries named
"mnt" in the /mnt directory?   I wasn't able to reproduce this.

You didn't list any "mnt" entries above.  So I don't know what you saw.
