2.2 DIF/DIX is not supported for ext file systems

The Data Integrity Field (DIF) and Data Integrity Extension (DIX) features that have been added to the SCSI standard are dependent on a file system that is capable of correctly handling attempts by the memory management system to change data in the buffer while it is queued for a write.

The ext2, ext3 and ext4 file system drivers do not prevent pages from being modified during I/O which can cause checksum failures and a "Logical block guard check failed" error. Other file systems such as XFS are supported. (Bug ID 24361968)
