I've obtained corrupted xfs log after some sanity xfs testing:


dd if=/dev/zero "of=$log" bs=4096 count=$log_size
loopdev=$(losetup -f)
losetup $loopdev $log

mkfs.xfs -f -m crc=1 -llogdev=$loopdev,size=${log_size}b $SCRATCH_DEV
mount -t xfs -ologdev=$loopdev $SCRATCH_DEV $SCRATCH_MNT
./fdtree.sh  -l 4 -d 4 -C -o $SCRATCH_MNT

xfs_logprint -l $loopdev $SCRATCH_DEV"

Test makes crc enabled xfs filesystem with the external log of minimal allowed size and then creates on this fs the small directory tree with sub directories and files of fixed depth and size with help of fdtree utility: https://computing.llnl.gov/?set=code&page=sio_downloads

After that xfs_logprint stably reports bad data in log:

"Oper (307): tid: eec9b0c7  len: 16  clientid: TRANS  flags: none

xfs_logprint: unknown log operation type (2e00)
Bad data in log"

Subsequent call to "xfs_repair -n -l $loopdev $SCRATCH_DEV" passes and filesystem is mounted without errors. I've supposed the using of inappropriate log size so updated log_size to default mkfs.xfs value for this device: "log_size=2560".
After that xfs_logprint core dumped with segfault (race condition):

"Feb 11 13:55:42 fedora.fedora kernel: xfs_logprint[14007]: segfault at 29f16768 ip 00000000004028ed sp 00007fff61b46850 error 4 in xfs_logprint[400000+4e000]"

I have the following configuration on vbox virtual machine with vdi, fixed size /dev/sdb:

[root@fedora alex]# cat /etc/issue
