> If ext4, with real applications running in the real world, exhibits this behavior then ext4 and
Linux, not necessarily in that order, are going to come to be considered unstable crap.
Please note that they already made and applied patches to restore the behavior people are arguing
for. You don't have to convince anybody that the most practical thing to do right now is fix this
behavior in the filesystem. So ext4 does *not* exhibit this behavior, anymore.
The only question remaining is if the filesystems *should* have had to make this change, or if what
they were doing before is really perfectly okay, except for all those darn applications people wrote
all of which are broken.
