Subject: Re: [RFC 0/5] Ext4: Add support for blocksize < pagesize for
 dioread_nolock

Hi Ritesh,

I haven't had a chance to dig into the test failures yet, but FYI....
when I ran the auto test group in xfstests, I saw failures for
generic/219, generic 273, and generic/476 --- these errors did not
show up when running using a standard 4k blocksize on x86, and they
also did not show up when running dioread_nolock using a 4k blocksize.

So I tried running "generic/219 generic/273 generic/476" 30 times,
using in a Google Compute Engine VM, using gce-xfstests, and while I
wasn't able to get generic/219 to fail when run in isolation,
generic/273 seems to fail quite reliably, and generic/476 about a
third of the time.

How much testing have you done with these patches?

Thanks,

							- Ted
