Subject: Re: BUG: aio/direct-io data corruption in 4.7

Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hello, my name is Gregory Shapiro and I am a newbie on this list.
I recently encountered data corruption as I got a kernel to
acknowledge write ("io_getevents" system call with a correct number of
bytes) but undergoing write to disk failed.
After investigating the problem I found it is identical to issue found
in direct-io.c mentioned the bellow thread.
Is there a reason proposed patch didn't apply to the kernel?
When can I expect it to be applied?
