Linux Kernel 4.3 RC5 Uncovers an Ancient and Fascinating EXT3/EXT4 Bug

There are no big features implemented in this fifth RC build, except for some a nasty fallout from the recently implemented strscpy thingy, as well as the discovery of a fascinating and ancient bug in the EXT3 and EXT4 filesystems.
