Re: [dm-devel] Dmsetup snapshot create/remove procedure and latest status with 2.6.x kernel series



I got this problem too,

it look like file system has not be unloked after copied data. (but
single snapshot seems has no this problem)
so new process will get into deep-sleep status and waiting the file
system be unlocked,

can anyone tell me.
what we can do to help speed up this fix?
Can I get any device mapper design documet here?

Have a nice day
rocky
