e2fsprogs (1.42.12-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version
* Fix various e2fsck bugs when trying to repair bigalloc file systems.
* E2fsck can now repair a file system with an overly large
s_first_meta_bg field, which had previously caused all e2fsprogs
programs to crash when trying to open such a file system.
* Fix e2fsck so that it can correctly fix a number of rare file system
corruptions that were discovered when using a file system fuzzer.
* Fix e2fsck so it does not try to write back block group descriptors
if they have not been modified.
* The mke2fs program will now place metadata blocks in the last
flex_bg so they are contiguous. This reduces free space
fragmentation in a freshly created file system, as well as allowing
mke2fs commands which request extremely large flex_bg size to succeed.
* Mke2fs now creates hugefiles more efficiently (with fewer extent
tree blocks).
* Fix a 32/64-bit overflow bug that could cause resize2fs to loop
* Reduce the memory consumption of resize2fs for very large file

system when shrinking a very large file system (typically > 16TB)
that had been previously grown using resize2fs. (Closes: #756922)

external journals (both the file system and journal UUID).

with a 1k block size.

* Fix a bug which caused e2fsck to abort a journal replay on a file
system with bigalloc enabled. (Closes: #744953)
* Fix mke2fs so it more correctly handles large flex_bg counts
* Mke2fs will check the kernel version number and not just the sysfs
feature flag to determine whether it is safe to enable lazy
inode table initialization, so it won't get faked out if the ext4 is
compiled as a module which hasn't happened to be loaded yet.
* E2fsck will now automatically fix a last mount time or last write time
which is in the future in preen mode.
* Mke2fs will now check the file system revision number requested by the
command line, and reject it if it is too large.
* If filefrag runs into an error, it will continue processing the rest
of the files specified on the command line, but then exit with an
error code.
* Filefrag now prints some additional new flags (such as
FIEMAP_EXTENT_ENCODED), and print unknown flags as hex values.

OOPS if they comes across one

blocks, and it will not use discard if the device advertises

information on filesystems with an external journal
* Update the Catalan translation
* Filter out lines when determining the library
dependencies while building the initial ramdisk (Closes: #503057)

* E2fsck now distinguishes between fragmented directories and
fragmented files in verbose mode statistics and in the fragcheck

verbose mode statistics.
* E2fsck now leaves slack space when repacking directories so that a

* E2fsck was previously not handling the case of a corrupted interior
node in the extent tree, and would crash in that case. It now will
handle this and related failures robustly.
* E2fsck problem descriptions involving the journal are no longer

* Fix a long-standing bug in e2fsck which would cause it to crash when
replying journals for filesystems with block sizes greater than 8k.

filesystems with 32-bit block numbers. This was accidentally broken
when the header files were changed to support the 64-bit block numbers.
* Fix resize2fs for ext4 filesystems. Some blocks that that need moving
when shrinking filesystems with uninit_bg feature would not be
moved. In addition, blocks and inode table blocks were not being
correctly freed when shrinking filesystems with the flex_bg feable,
which caused resize2fs -M to fail. Finally, when blocks are moved,
make sure the uninitialized flag in extents is preserved.

devices currently used by user-level software suspend.
* tune2fs will not allow changing the inode size for filesystems that
have the flex_bg feature enabled, since the code currently assumes
the each block group's portion inode table is located in its own
block group.
* Fix tune2fs -I so it won't corrupt ext3/ext4 filesystem configured
for RAID storage devices.
* Mke2fs now understands a -U option which allows the UUID to be
specified for the new filesystem.
* Mke2fs will now treat devices with exactly 16TB as if they have 16TB
minus one block, since many users expect ext4 to support 16TB
devices, and the true maximum size is 16TB-1.

* New upstream release.
* Mke2fs will now create new filesystems with 256 byte inodes and the
ext_attr feature flag by default. This allows for much better
future compatibility with ext4 and speeds up extended attributes
even on ext3 filesystems.
* Teach mke2fs and tune2fs to set a "test_fs" flag, which indicates
that it is ok to use the filesystem on in-development kernel
code (i.e., ext4dev)
* E2fsck now optimizes non-htree directories by sorting them by inode
* Add support for detecting HFS+ and ext4/ext4dev filesystems in blkid
* Fix blkid's ntfs UUID handling so it is compatible with vol_id
* Avoid a floating point exception when blkid tries to probe a corrupt
reiserfs filesystem.
* Fix potential overflow problem in e2image if the device name is
too long.
* Cause e2image to exit immediately with an error message on a disk
full situation.
* Fix a minor typos in the resize2fs and uuidd manpages.
* E2fsck will no longer backup superblocks when the kernel makes
certain "safe" feature set changes behind the user's back.
* Fix debugfs's lsdel command so it works on large files
* Allow a user to undelete an inode with linking to a destination

e2fsprogs (1.40.4-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Make sure that programs like tune2fs, when modifying a mounted
filesystem do not write the backup superblocks with the
NEEDS_RECOVERY flag, to avoid e2fsck from needlessly forcing a
full fsck because it thinks the feature flags need to be backed up
from the master to the backup superblocks. (Closes: #454926)
* Improve time-based UUID generation to guarantee uniqueness even when
UUID's are being generated at very high rates on SMP systems. To
do this we use an optional setuid helper daemon (uuidd) which is
started by libuuid when it is needed. The uuidd daemon is
packaged in the (new) uuid-runtime package, which now also includes
the uuidgen program (which had been previously been included as
part of the e2fsprogs package).
* Fix fsck to only treat '#' characters at the beginning of /etc/fstab
lines as starting a comment. This avoids spurious warnings printed
for filesystems such as fuse that often use '#' as part of the
filesystem specifier (i.e., wdfs#
* Enhance the blkid program to pretty-print control and meta
characters to avoid garbage filesystem labels from screwing up the
user's terminal
* Fix potential integer overflows passed to malloc() in resize2fs
* Update Dutch, Polish, and Vietnamese translations from the
Translation Project. Remove the Rwandan translation upon advice

* Clarified and improved man pages (Closes: #444883, #441872)
* Fix potential divide by zero error when libblkid tried probing an
invalid FAT filesystem.
* Make error_message() in libcom_err DTRT when when a 64-bit sign-extended
error code is passed to it.
* Build the e2fsck-static package so that e2fsck.static will not use
TLS and hence will run correctly on back-level Debian systems
using a 2.4 Linux kernel. (Closes: #458017)

Linux kernel bug

the device does not support the BLKSSZGET ioctl (Closes: #196734)

* If the hardware sector size of a device is larger than the default
blocksize, use the hardware sector size as the blocksize when creating
a filesystem, to solve problems with s/390 DASD's.

labels for JFS and ROMFS.
* Make the random number generator more paranoid about potentially buggy
/dev/random devices.
* The badblocks program now flushes its output as it discovers bad blocks.
* Imported bug fixes to EVMS driver from the EVMS 2.0 tree. Fixed a
few potential hangs, and eliminated a file descriptor leak.
* E2fsck now updates the global free block and inode counters from
the block group specific counters quietly. This is needed for an
experimental kernel patch which improves SMP scalability by not
locking the entire filesystem during block or inode allocation; if
the filesystem is not unmounted cleanly, the global counts may not
be accurate.

floppy disk if there the floppy drive has filesystem type of
'auto'. (Closes: #187812)
