Quoting Robert Story <rstory-l at 2006.revelstone.com>:
> I've had a patch for vobcopy sitting around for a while, and the 1.0 release
> motivated me to dig it up and send it in.
> I had a problem where I was extracting a dvd to a nfs mount. Apparently the
> write/close calls do not return an error if the filesystem fills up.
> The patch simply adds a fdatasync() call before closing files. This will give
> an error and exit if all the data was not written.
> I took the easy route, and only called the sync before the close.
> Upstream may
> want to consider calling it more frequently during the copy loops,
> or checking
> for free space before starting the extraction.
