[Bug 1527039] Re: read: Value too large for defined data type -- from fanotify interface


This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves
the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the
results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-
trusty' to 'verification-done-trusty'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will
be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how
to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

Bug description:
  fatrace is giving me errors because my computer is using large files:

  sarnold@hunt:~/trees/linux$ sudo fatrace
  [sudo] password for sarnold:

  read: Value too large for defined data type
  sarnold@hunt:~/trees/linux$ sudo fatrace
  read: Value too large for defined data type

  A fix is available in

  I'm currently using:
  Linux hunt 3.13.0-69-generic #112-Ubuntu SMP Tue Nov 10 16:29:26 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

  I did't see the above fix in my checkout of the Ubuntu kernel git
  tree, so this is probably a fair result despite coming from a
  -proposed kernel. (I'm going to reboot any day now, I promise.)
