I have heard of cases where booting another (previous) kernel gave
access to the files again. So I guess it can happen that the new
data are written to the same extents in which the old data resided
(for instance, if the file was shortened).
Why would it be possible to access the data with a previous kernel,
but only see zeroes with a newer version?
