I don't see 0.30.216 here yet:

I would have thought the hashify feature is pretty user-space (check
hashes, and create hard-links, it's pretty much a job for a bash
script), but I did find this:
so I'll do a test with the current kernel and the latest bleeding edge

My main suspect at the moment is an ext4 bug, though. If it doesn't go
away with the latest kernel and userspace I'll try with ext2 and see if
that makes the problem go away. But even if it does, this still needs to
be investigated and the root cause identified, since it verifiably leads
to file corruption.
