How do you propose to validate that this doesn't introduce new data
corruptions in isolation? I've spent the last 4 weeks of my life and
about 15 billion fsx ops chasing an validating the bug corruption
fixes we've pushed recently into the 4.19 and 4.20 codebase.

Cherry picking only one of the 50-odd patches we've committed into
late 4.19 and 4.20 kernels to fix the problems we've found really
seems like asking for trouble. If you're going to back port random
data corruption fixes, then you need to spend a *lot* of time
validating that it doesn't make things worse than they already
are...

Cheers,

Dave.
