Subject: [PATCH 1/5] Avoid potential block overflow when writing journal metadata tags
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.file-systems.ext2.devel
Date: Tuesday 27th June 2006 16:01:43 UTC (over 11 years ago)
When writing block numbers into a journal descriptor block, don't write
the top 32 bits of a tag unless we're using a 64-bit journal.  That
avoids any possibility of overflowing off the end of the descriptor
block in the case where the last 32-bit tag only just fits into the
descriptor block.

Also cleans up the tag handling slightly by introducing new macros for
the size of 32- and 64-bit descriptor tags.
