parent[PATCH] Fix filp being passed through raw ioctl handler (diff)
[PATCH] Avoid console spam with ext3 aborted journal.
Avoid console spam with ext3 aborted journal. ext3 usually reports error conditions that it detects in its environment. But when its journal gets aborted due to such errors, it can sometimes continue to report that condition forever, spamming the console to such an extent that the initial first cause of the journal abort can be lost. When the journal aborts, we put the filesystem into readonly mode. Most subsequent filesystem operations will get rejected immediately by checks for MS_RDONLY either in the filesystem or in the VFS. But some paths do not have such checks --- for example, if we continue to write to a file handle that was opened before the fs went readonly. (We only check for the ROFS condition when the file is first opened.) In these cases, we can continue to generate log errors similar to EXT3-fs error (device $DEV) in start_transaction: Journal has aborted for each subsequent write. There is really no point in generating these errors after the initial error has been fully reported. Specifically, if we're starting a completely new filesystem operation, and the filesystem is *already* readonly (ie. the ext3 layer has already detected and handled the underlying jbd abort), and we see an EROFS error, then there is simply no point in reporting it again.
