[linux-lvm] Kernel panic issue of kernel 2.6.16-rc1 + latest device mapper patches



Hi,

 

Thanks for the team working on the device mapper driver.

I have installed Fedora Core 4 and downloaded latest device mapper patches from the website http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/agk/patches/2.6/editing/ and applied them to the kernel 2.6.16-rc1, but I still experience problems when removing snapshots if there are large I/Os and tens of snapshots have been created. Before applying those patches to the kernel, kernel panic even when removing the only one snapshot created for a LV if there are large I/Os on the LV.

 

The steps to produce the issue:

 

1.       Create PV on the disk partition directly

2.       Create VG on the PV just created

3.       Create a 20G LV on the VG

4.       Create XFS file system on the LV

5.       Mount the LV

6.       Run a script to generate large I/Os on the LV. The job will keep running till interrupted by me.

7.       2 snapshots have been created for the LV successfully

8.       All snapshots have been removed one by one successfully

9.       21 snapshots have been created for the LV successfully

10.   Try to remove all snapshots by (“lvremove –f /dev/vg/snap*”).

I have seen following messages in the system log before kernel panic information were logged.
