I've just lost data to XFS, with the files full of nulls. I've found
posts dating back over two years about such data losses. I'm using
linux 2.6.17 with xfsprogs 2.8.10.

emacs claims to fsync on write, yet still I lost data, the faq
suggests I should not have if this is so?

Is this likely to be fixed soon, or should I switch file system?

Many thanks.
