[PATCH] 16T fixes for JBD

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


These are a few places I've found in jbd that look like they
may not be 16T-safe, or consistent with the use of unsigned
longs for block containers.  Problems here would be somewhat
hard to hit, would require journal blocks past the 8T boundary,
which would not be terribly common.  Still, should fix.

(some of these have come from the ext4 work on jbd
as well).

I think there's one more possibility that the wrap()
function may not be safe IF your last block in the journal
butts right up against the 232 block boundary, but that seems
like a VERY remote possibility, and I'm not worrying about it
at this point.

This patch lived on ext4-devel for a few days without comment
so I assume it passes muster there ;-)
