ZFS Bug From Solaris Found in Linux FUSE Version and Fixed

Those who know me in my day job know that I’m pretty good at breaking things, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised I found a ZFS bug that was from the OpenSolaris code base and had been sitting there for about a year unnoticed. The ZFS on Linux developer has now fixed the bug and sent a patch back upstream, so hopefully there will be a fix in OpenSolaris because of work done on Linux!

The good thing is that because I found it on Linux running ZFS using FUSE the bug didn’t take my system down when the ZFS file system daemon died. 🙂 http://www.csamuel.org/2007/06/19/zfsfuse-makes-it-to-linuxworld-and-lwn/
