    But enough of this bullshit - I'm not interested in arguing uselessly with such people, and to continue polluting this thread with nonsense.
    If you love Islam so much then I have a bridge to sell to you, to your wife and to your wife's boyfriend. This is a win-win-win scenario. All software MUST adopt Sharia Law as a replacement for Code of Conduct. That way we'll legally protect our software from getting ruined by feminists, and the likes of you must tolerate this or else risk being called a racist islamophobic bigot.

      Bigoted is defined as: "obstinately or unreasonably attached to a belief, opinion, or faction, and intolerant towards other people's beliefs and practices."

      Opinion is in the definition... actually, according to this definition, a hardcore feminist would be a bigot as well

        I left my backups on XFS, but I'm really liking bcachefs already. I had an unexpected power loss a while ago while coping some files and it fsck'd just fine. The biggest downsides is that you need a custom kernel, and the mount times are long (~1 min for 6TB HDD).

          Damn, I read this thread a days ago, but I had just been hit by the corruption problem. Running 4.19.5. (And I was installing 4.19.6 during this time, I don't know if that version fix the problem). I revert to 4.18 now. Using linux mint 19 on a SSD.

              I use only Btrfs and Xfs on my PCs and I have never had any problems, in fact I have never had problems even with Ext4. Ok, there are some users who have a problem, it can happen with any file system, but all these file systems are still reliable. Reading the comments I get the impression that even the file systems have their irreducible fans boy, which is sad. When I read I switched from Btrfs to Ext4 because this or because that's ridiculous enough, learn to better configure what you need to use and you'll see that it will work fine.

                I had the issue with 4.19.5 on my old machine (intel broadwell nuc, samsung 850 pro ssd) and, as with the others here, fsck on reboot and reverting to 4.18.x fixed it. In my new machine (ryzen 2700x, evo 970 nvme) I don't have it even though I do use ext4 locally for everything (2 ssds & 1 hdd), (and CONFIG_EXT4_ENCRYPTION is on for ubuntu kernels). So maybe it's drivers+hardware related. Or could it be an intel (chipset) vs. amd thing?

                What do you guys use, those of you who experienced it?

                  Pinned as blk-mq bug. Rip btrfs users clamoring for an ext4 bug. =P

                    I wasn't aware that there was a flame war between btrfs and ext4 users. They are both great and have been perfectly stable for me. I use ext4 on my local machine, jfs on my mini-server (scratch drive), and btfs there too for the raid1'd hdds (checksums, bitrot prevention and all that).

                      The bug has seemingly been identified and a fix has been submitted to mainline. 4.19/4.20 are currently still affected.

                      Check the bug report discussion for more details.

                      People who run the affected systems should either apply the patch immediately or downgrade to kernel 4.18. Running e2fsck/your-fs.fsck is pretty much mandatory.
