Subject: xfs used disk space bug in 2.6.38-rc1 (commit 6e857567dbbfe14dd6cc3f7414671b047b1ff5c7)
Date: Thu, 20 Jan 2011 14:01:45 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87zkqvtet2.fsf@sycorax.lbl.gov> (raw)

my home directory is using xfs and i noticed that when i try to compile
a program or do any kind of disk access (like git pull, etc) the amount
of space used jumps by tens of gigabytes causing the disk to seemingly
become full (eventually). on reboot the used disk space goes back to the
correct value. i did a 'git bisect start -- fs/xfs' and i tracked it
down to commit 6e857567dbbfe14dd6cc3f7414671b047b1ff5c7. if i revert
this patch then disk usage doesn't increase unexpectedly (i have 270GB
free and the disk became full by simply trying to compile wine). i can
try patches if somebody comes up with one.
