I read the bug discussion but don't fully understand what's going on here.
Assume the code is
fd = open("file.new",O_TRUNC|O_WRONLY|O_CREAT); write(fd, "hi", 2); close(fd); rename("file.new", "file");Are we saying that in ext4, the rename can happen many tens-of-seconds before the data "hi" is actually allocated and written?
