[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm table: Reject unconfigured device



Some block devices exist but have request function undefined
(e.g. loop device without backing file).

Because we are allowing  devices with zero size
(offline device in multipath, see commit
2cd54d9bedb79a97f014e86c0da393416b264eb3, there should be
additional check if device is initialised.

This patch adds check that block device has request function
defined, otherwise it rejects mapped area as invalid.

Reproducer is trivial: dm-mirror on unbound loop device
(no backing file on loop devices)

dmsetup create x --table "0 8 mirror core 2 8 sync 2 /dev/loop0 0 /dev/loop1 0"

and mirror resync will immediatelly cause OOps.

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at   (null)
