Subject: [Bug 32972] New: EXT4 causes corrupt BitTorrent downloads

https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32972

           Summary: EXT4 causes corrupt BitTorrent downloads
           Product: File System
           Version: 2.5
    Kernel Version: 2.6.39-rc2+
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
              Tree: Mainline
            Status: NEW
          Severity: high
          Priority: P1
         Component: ext4
        AssignedTo: fs_ext4@...nel-bugs.osdl.org
        ReportedBy: damien@...ssart.com
                CC: feng.tang@...el.com
        Regression: Yes


Using the Transmission BitTorrent client (version 2.11) with the most recent
kernel (2.6.39-rc2+), any torrent I try to download is corrupt. By using
Transmission's "Verify Local Data" functionality, I am able to reproduce this
consistently. During verification, the percent complete will reverse itself as
the verification process invalidates pieces that were just downloaded.

I was able to bisect the issue and track it down to this commit:

commit 6de9843dab3f2a1d4d66d80aa9e5782f80977d20
Author: Feng Tang <feng.tang@...el.com>

    ext4: remove redundant set_buffer_mapped() in ext4_da_get_block_prep()

    The map_bh() call will have already set the buffer_head to mapped.

        }
        return 0;
 }


I confirmed that reverting this commit makes the problem go away.

Thanks,
