Could you please send us a tested patch to fix these things, as > per http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/stuff/tpp.txt ? > The analysis is basically correct and explains the bug. According to the SCSI standards, the sense code is NO SENSE or RECOVERED ERROR in case writing filemark(s) succeeds. If it fails (partly or completely) the sense code is VOLUME OVERFLOW. The patch below is tested to fix the case when one filemark is successfully written after the EOM early warning. It should also fix the case at real EOM but this has not been tested. Carl, thanks for reporting the bug and providing the analysis for the fix. Signed-off-by: Kai Makisara <kai.makisara@kolumbus.fi> Signed-off-by: James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@SteelEye.com>
