This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed- xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-failed- xenial'.
If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed.

With the fix, it runs without fault. == Regression Potential == This changes the checksumming in the ext4 xattr so it only touches the ext4 xattr part of the file system. Risk is therefore contained in the xattr handling on ext4. Tested with stress-ng and the generic file system tests without any regressions, so risk is limited and small. --------------------------------------------------------- Testing failed on: ppc64el: https://objectstorage.prodstack4-5.canonical.com/v1/AUTH_77e2ada1e7a84929a74ba3b87153c0ac/autopkgtest-zesty/zesty/ppc64el/l/linux/20170122_110123_770b2@/log.gz To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/linux/+bug/1658633/+subscriptions -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~kernel-packages Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~kernel-packages More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
