[PATCH] forgotten ->b_data in memcpy() call in ext3/resize.c (oopsable)
sbi->s_group_desc is an array of pointers to buffer_head. memcpy() of buffer size from address of buffer_head is a bad idea - it will generate junk in any case, may oops if buffer_head is close to the end of slab page and next page is not mapped and isn't what was intended there. IOW, ->b_data is missing in that call. Fortunately, result doesn't go into the primary on-disk data structures, so only backup ones get crap written to them; that had allowed this bug to remain unnoticed until now.
