Subject: [Bug 201685] ext4 file system corruption

--- Comment #94 from Jens Axboe ( ---
In terms of ext4 changes, it'd be interesting to just revert this one:

    ext4: readpages() should submit IO as read-ahead

as that guy is generally just not trust worthy. In all seriousness, though, it
shouldn't cause issues (or I would not have done it), and we already do this
for readpages in general, but I guess we could have an older bug in ext4 that
depends deeply on read-ahead NOT failing. Not sure how likely that is, Ted can
probably comment on that.

But it's a trivial revert, and it could potentially be implicated.
