Got the data back with the xfs_progs from cvs.
All works fine with disabled writecache on the IDE HDDs, untill I saw a
few reboots later that there was corruption on my root fs again :-(.
This corruption will not cause the system to hang, but ...... you know....
here's a snippet from my log:
The only thing here is "normal" log recovery, nothing that should indicate
corruption. I assume that this is after what claims to be a clean shutdown?
So I can sleep now without thinking 'bout lost data.... ;-)
And what about the "Invalid ioctl" messages I get aometimes since I use xfs?
Probably the BLKSETSIZE ioctl, perhaps your raid driver doesn't implement
it? I wonder if this could be part of the problem... at one point it looked
like this was harmless.
Ok, how to find out?? Should I forward/write something to the ataraid
ML?? I'm not a kernel hacker, so I dont have any glue what ioctls are ;-)
