In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

ext4: avoid allocating blocks from corrupted group in ext4_mb_try_best_found()

Determine if the group block bitmap is corrupted before using ac_b_ex in
ext4_mb_try_best_found() to avoid allocating blocks from a group with a
corrupted block bitmap in the following concurrency and making the
situation worse.

  ext4_lock_group(sb, group)
   // check if the group bbitmap is corrupted
   // Scan group gets ac_b_ex but doesn't use it
  ext4_unlock_group(sb, group)
                           // The block bitmap was corrupted during
                           // the group unlock gap.
    ext4_lock_group(ac->ac_sb, group)
      // Allocating blocks in block bitmap corrupted group
