Beginning at 2.6.17 to, there is a serious XFS bug that results in filesystem corruption, there was a 1 line bugfix patch that was released recently and I was wondering when would be released with that patch? It affected ALL my Linux machines (x86) running XFS and many people on the XFS mailing list who upgraded to 2.6.17. I understand when there is a root exploit or DoS bug, the kernel is naturally patched by the -stable team and a new version is released immediately. Does filesystem corruption not constitute an immediate new -stable release of the kernel?
