err, these patches were introduced two years ago.
so this was known, problem and fixed long time ago in xfs. Still it needed this whole hoopla now before known issue was fixed (but not tested in ext4)

Actually, wrong again. Ted did know about this problem and commented about it in the FOSDEM 2009 video and said that he was pushing in patches that followed the XFS ideas long before this problem was well known.

The actual video that has more details is available online and was pointed out by a previous poster

so what?
until whole story poped up Nothing happened. "Pushing it?"
what does actually mean? Clean hands? Doubt it.
As long as this was not fixed, this is/was not fixed. Nobody ever mentioned this officially before ext4 problems caused so much trouble.
"Pushing it" means nothing.
