enhancement update in Fedora 30 for e2fsprogs

Status: stable 7 months ago


If files are created while e4defrag is running, it's quite possible for succeed_cnt to be larger than total_count, in which case the number of failures (calculated via total_count - succeed_cnt) will overflow and become a very large unsigned number. (Addresses Debian Bug: #888899)

Fix e2fsck so it can correctly handle directories > 2 GiB when the largedir feature is enabled.

Fix mke2fs's hugefile creation so that we correctly reserve enough metadata blocks for a given file system size. Otherwise for certain unfortunately sized disks/partitions, the hugefile creation would fail. (Addresses Google Bug: 123239032)

Fix the libext2fs library to be more robust against invalid block group descriptors to prevent e2fsprogs from crashing (or possibly being p0wned) by maliciously modified file systems. (Addresses Google Bugs: 119171089, 119929050)

Fix mke2fs and debugfs so they can correctly copy in files > 2 GiB.

Fix debugfs so its stat command can correct supportly display directory sizes > 2 GiB.

Fix memory leaks in debugfs, mke2fs, and e2freefrag.

Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.

Synchronized changes from Android's AOSP e2fsprogs tree.

Avoid unnecessarily linking badblocks with the libblkid shared library. (Addresses Debian Bug: #919958)

Stop depending on the debugfs binary for test data, since depending on the compiler, there might be sufficient aligned zero bytes that the resulting file(s) created by test cases could have unexpected sparse blocks, leading to test failures. (Addresses Google Bug: #122085761)

Fixed various debian packaging issues.
