[dm-devel] XFS getting EAGAIN from block device



Hello,

After upgrading Ubuntu from 10.10 to 11.04 I started getting error messages in my syslog when accessing one of my xfs partitions. It is not the root partition.

The helpful team on IRC (#xfs on irc.freenode.net) says that what I want to do is figure out why I'm getting -EAGAIN from the block device.

The error message I get when accessing the filesystem (through nautilus, or in a terminal) is:

<snip>

</snip>
... and so on.

The helpful team on IRC supplied me with a patch to understand the error message alittle better.

After fetching a new kernel source, unmounting my xfs partition, applying the patch (running: "patch -p1 < hch_patch" in /usr/src/linux-2.6.38) and making a new module (running: "make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`/fs/xfs" in /usr/src/linux-2.6.38), removing the old module (running: "rmmod xfs.ko") and then insmoding the new (running: "insmod xfs.ko") I get the following error message:

After a while when for example extracting a zip archive I get the following error messages:

... and so on

Accessing the device is slower than before the upgrade to 11.04, and it is not without errors that I can access the device.

$ uname -r
Linux picard 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:24 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


HW specs:
The XFS partition is run on a HW Raid on 2 x 1TB WD Black Caviar. Motherboard is an ASUS Sabertooth P67 with Intel Sandy Bridge i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz.


Do you guys know what might be wrong, how I or you or we can solve this?


Regards,

Marko
