The "make usb-image" command should call genext2fs with the -i arg for large file systems else you do not have enough inodes if you are simply adding extra space to execute various work loads.


make usb-image-loop

Steps to Reproduce

configure --enable-rootfs=glibc_small --enable-board=qemux86

make usb-image IMGARGS="--ext2-mb=2000 --no-rm"

mkdir /tmp/jj

sudo mount -o loop export/img_tmp.2 /tmp/jj ; df -i /tmp/jj ; sudo umount /tmp/jj

Filesystem     Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on

/dev/loop0       4000  1225  2775   31% /tmp/jj

That will not be nearly enough!
