I'm getting some random file corruption on one of my XFS LVM volumes,
leading to things like an emacs binary that is filled with runs of
NULs and pieces of deleted files. I've been able to build
successfully on an ext2 logical volume on the same machine with the
same kernel. I've tried both a kernel built from a 2.4.17 and a
2.4.16 CVS pull, built with gcc 2.95.4 from Debian unstable. I still
have a 2.4.14-pre7 lying around, so I'll try an emacs build on that,
I'm not really sure how to start tracking this down; I don't even have
a simple test case to reproduce it apart from doing `apt-get source
--build emacs21', so suggestions for things to try and information to
gather would be appreciated.
