[dm-devel] 2.6.8.1: try to create snapshot w/o dm-snapshot.ko loaded makes system unusable



Minor bug: if one attempts to create a snapshot without the
dm-snapshot module loaded, the system gets "hosed up" rather than just
reporting an error.

I did this: sudo lvcreate --size 100m --snapshot --name snap /dev/vg2/home

I then got an error that I didn't have snapshot support loaded, so I
loaded it (modprobe dm-snapshot) and tried again.  I then got an error
that the 'snap' volume already existed.  Sometime around then, the
/home partition became unusable, and any process that attempted to
access it became unresponsive.   I used Alt-SysRq to reboot.

On reboot, both /dev/vg2/home and /dev/vg2/snap existed and were
inactive.  I vgremove'd /dev/vg2/snap, activated /dev/vg2/home, fsck'd
it, and went on my way.  Snapshot support appears to work great once
the module is loaded.
