fine that someone has hit that bug again, before
it caused data loss in a production environment ;)

are chances really that low? so - this time the
luck was with me :)

i`d like to! what "jobs" need to be done? unfortunately
i`m no coder, so my contributions will not be that "advanced".
but - better contributing a little bit, than contributing

could you point me to this issue?

do you refer to the patches in these postings:
>for both I manually apply the patches
could you please point me to that patches? if not in the SF patchtracker,
shouldn`t we put them in? (and also the COW-Patch?)
it also seems that the clock-skew patch
needs to be reworked - it doesn`t apply to 2.6-test11 anymore.

I expect that the short answer is that your
error was not quite like the versions we
saw before, and so until we got more
information about the exact nature of the
error, it was not clear what the error was
This is also likely the reason you did not
find it while searching...
I too had thought that the segfault had
been claimed as fixed :(
This error also occurs rarely as it only
appears if the block device length is
within 31 bits of the end of the bitmap
page, 0.09% chance and the sizes are
odd from the human point of view.
If you want to volunteer, welcome ;)
as to the current kernels I only run into
2.4.22-6 -- hostaudio_kern help text
2.6.0-test11-1 -- modules don't work
