Subject: Re: bug with large_dir in 5.12.17

Hello Teodore,

Your one-line fix looks good.

I have tested it. 1560000 names created successfully.

But the patch with refactoring doesn’t work. I got this messages

1480000 names created
1520000 names created
ln: failed to access 'n0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001520519': Bad message

[ 7699.212018] EXT4-fs error (device loop0): dx_probe:887: inode #2: block 144843: comm ln: Directory index failed checksum
[ 7699.216001] EXT4-fs error (device loop0): dx_probe:887: inode #2: block 144843: comm ln: Directory index failed checksum

I have no objections to send your one-line fix, but we need to double check refactoring.

Best regards,
Artem Blagodarenko
