I could not reproduce this in a 3.0 kernel.

I'm currently bisecting this. Reached halfway through, but takes time because I get an error if I don't run clean between each build. Is there a way to avoid that?

    block: Fix discard topology stacking and reporting


    commit a934a00a69e940b126b9bdbf83e630ef5fe43523 upstream.

    In some cases we would end up stacking discard_zeroes_data incorrectly.
    Fix this by enabling the feature by default for stacking drivers and
    clearing it for low-level drivers. Incorporating a device that does not
    support dzd will then cause the feature to be disabled in the stacking

    Also ensure that the maximum discard value does not overflow when
    exported in sysfs and return 0 in the alignment and dzd fields for
    devices that don't support discard.

I'm not sure yet if it is correct. I also noticed that the bug does not appear when doing sleep before logging in, which makes me suspect it has something to do with wlan or mobile broadband. But it might also be with ecryptfs, which I use (as this commit seems to be about storage).

I tried to build a kernel package with the patch reverted, but get:

EE: 1232 symbols changed hash and weren't ignored
make: *** [abi-check-generic] Error 1

even when I have run clean first. How to avoid this?

My guess is that a stable backport was not complete, probably the commit above. Could someone build a version with that patch reverted?

I tried 3.0.0-9.14 package and there the problem does not exist.
