Re: [dm-devel] help:"event number"



Thanks,i got it.
But i have another question.Sometimes, i can't remove the device, in the "dmsetup man", it said "because an uninterruptible process is waiting for I/O to return from it", and what should i do for getting the PID or something about this "uninterruptible process"? I know adding "--force" can help me remove the device, but i am worried about this action will cause I/O broken.

No.  Just means something happened that userspace ought to know about,
like a path failing.  Used by 'wait' - see 'man dmsetup' and
http://people.redhat.com/agk/talks/FOSDEM_2005/text51.html .
