Post Syndicated from jake original https://lwn.net/Articles/757123/rss

The kernel’s handling of I/O errors was the topic of a discussion led by
Matthew Wilcox at the 2018 Linux Storage, Filesystem, and Memory-Management
Summit (LSFMM) in a combined storage and filesystem track session. At the start, he asked: “how is our error handling and
what do we plan to do about it?” That led to a discussion between the
developers present on the kinds of errors that can occur and on
ways to handle them.
