Slashdot just reported that there " is a bug in the latest kernel
releases, that causes fs corruption on umount. A lot of people have
already been hit by this, so for now I suggest you hold fire on booting
those new kernels. More dead-duck than greased-turkey. Two possible
fixes are being discussed on linux-kernel." Colin Bayer adds links to a
story at the Register and Al Viro's fix. Update: 11/25 00:39 GMT by T:
Tarkie writes "Linux 2.4.16-pre1 is out, as detailed at NewsForge. If
you've been having the filesystem corruptions, might be worth a try so
that 2.4.16 can be out ASAP!"
