Subject[PATCH v2] ext4: set csum seed in tmp inode while migrating to extents
Date
When migrating to extents, the temporary inode will have it's own checksum
seed. This means that, when swapping the inodes data, the inode checksums
will be incorrect.

This can be fixed by recalculating the extents checksums again. Or simply
by copying the seed into the temporary inode.

changes since v1:

* Dropped tmp_ei variable
* ->i_csum_seed is now initialised immediately after tmp_inode is created
* New comment about the seed initialization and stating that recovery
needs to be fixed.

Cheers,
