[Bug 242448] Re: Hardy ecryptfs can cause data loss

I have reproduced the original problem using the 2.6.24-19.41 generic
kernel image from the hardy-updates repository, and can confirm that the
2.6.24-21.42 generic kernel image from hardy-proposed does eliminate the
file corrupting behavior, at least when using ecryptfs with the
passphrase option.

I also exercised the ecryptfs filesystem by running LTP's filesystem
stress tests manually on the encryptfs filesystem and saw no
regressions, for what it's worth. (Admittedly, the LTP tests didn't
catch this bug.)

Serge, the reason Leann's comment was added to this bug is because the
development (intrepid) task's state in launchpad is currently set to
"Confirmed" or in other words is still considered an open bug against
the development kernel. If you or anyone else can confirm that it was
indeed fixed upstream before 2.6.26, then please mark that task as
invalid. Thanks!
