Right, in which case it's the equivalent as if part of your disk was
randomly overwritten/corrupt in certain areas because you likely
had some writes going over parts of the disk which were used by
other files and metadata when it was first mounted and written to.

I think your recovery angle is a good approach w/ the older kernel.
