           Summary: Filesystem corruption at boot, with data loss
           Product: Linux XFS
           Version: 1.2.x
          Platform: IA32
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: High
         Component: XFS kernel code
        AssignedTo: xfs-master@xxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: dgborin@xxxxxxxxx


Kernel 2.4.20 with XFS patch 2002-11-29
 and
Kernel 2.4.19 with XFS patch 1.2pre4

Debian 3.0r0 with security patches, XFree 4.2.1, Gnome 2 e KDE 3.

Both the patches from oss.sgi.com.

At reboot, I randomly get a filesystem corruption: the first time the system
wasn't able to mount /, the other times it wasn't able to read getty, so I
coudn't read the other messages.

Trying to fix with xfs_repair from xfsutils 2.3.6 wasn't possible because of an
internal error. With the older version shipped with Debian 3.0r0 I was able to
repair it.

After the repairs, there was random data loss (entire files with 0 length).

The problem never happened before, with kernel 2.4.19 with XFS patch 2002-09-27
and previous versions.

Hardware configuration:
AMD K6 1.3GHz
ASUS A7V motherboard (VIA KT133)
NVidia GeForce 2 MX 400
Creative SB Live!
Adaptech SCSI controller 2940U
DEC 10/100 ethernet controller (tulip driver)
IBM 40GB hard disk (checked, it works OK)

Additional kernel modules:
ALSA 0.9pre6
NVidia driver 1.0-3123
Packet writing 2.4.19-2 (only with 2.4.19)

All software compiled with gcc 2.95.4 (the version shipped with Debian 3.0).
