Subject: [PATCH] ext4: convert BUG_ON's to WARN_ON's in mballoc.c
Date: Mon, 13 Apr 2020 23:56:49 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

If the in-core buddy bitmap gets corrupted (or out of sync with the
block bitmap), issue a WARN_ON and try to recover.  In most cases this
involves skipping trying to allocate out of a particular block group.
We can end up declaring the file system corrupted, which is fair,
since the file system probably should be checked before we proceed any
