FEDORA-2019-b4207428d3 created by lczerner 5 years ago for Fedora 29

Use 64-bit counters to track the number of files that are defragmented using in e4defrag, to avoid overflows when more than 2**32 files are defragmented.

Correctly translate Posix ACL's. This was a regression introduced in v1.44.

Use the online free block counts so e2freefrag's percentages are correct.

Fix a false warning that tune2fs will take long time to change a UUID if the metadata_csum feature is not enabled.

E2fsck will only offer to set the inline_data feature flag when the inline flag is set on the inode, and the xattr is present.

E4defrag will handle the case where it is running as root and it can't find the file system to open more gracefully.

Fix a bug where resize2fs was failing to update the extent tree checksums in an corner case.

Fix fuse2fs's command line parsing when options are specified after the target device/image.

Fix a bug which could cause e2fsprogs tools to segfault on a corrupted file system where the journal's s_nr_users is impossibly large.

E2image now includes the mmp block (if needed) when creating a metadata-only image.

Fix various Verity handling bugs which made it completely unusable in e2fsprogs 1.44.4.

Fix a bug in tune2fs where it would dereference of freed memory after replaying the journal.

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.

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.

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.

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.
