I switched my laptop from ffs to lfs about a month ago and until a couple of
days ago everything seemed perfect. This is on i386. The last kernel where
I did not notice any problems was built on 29 August (I plan to restore the
system from that date and do some testing later). Here's what I've seen
1) An occasional "lfs_writeinode: looping count=2" in /var/log/messages
2) One case of lfs_cleanerd looping forever cleaning the same set of segments
over and over.
3) One case of any access to a file system hanging (unkillable even with -9).
4) Running fsck -f on a filesystem after a clean reboot reports errors (this
may be normal behavior for all I know).
Have any changes been made to the lfs code recently that might explain this?
