[dm-devel] dm_suspend will take too long?



Hi All,
        I use "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/vg00/lv00 bs=1K"  to make big IO on the origin LV. then I use lvcreate to create a snapshot on it (lv00). it will suspend till the 'dd' ends.
       I read the source code and find the 'dm_suspend' function will call "lock_fs", then find all of them hang at  "sync_blockdev(struct block_device *bdev)" function, because the function call  "__filemap_fdatawrite(mapping, WB_SYNC_ALL);" later.
      I don't want the lvcreate snapshot take so long, suspend the origin lv is needed?And the WB_SYNC_ALL will cause update dirty pages slower than 'dd'  write data.
      sync_blockdev will wait on any mapping it seems. can dm_suspend do not wait for it?
      My kernel version:2.6.29. LVM2.02.63.
      Thanks.
 
Best regards,
Busby
