[linux-lvm] Large LVM leading to e2fsck segfault



Hello everyone -- got a CentOS 4.4 (x86_64) machine running a ~9TB LVM.
We initially had problems with the LVM under 32-bit CentOS 4 so we
upgraded to 64-bit CentOS.  The LVM was originally created under the
32-bit environment however.

# uname -a
Linux rmanbackup 2.6.9-42.0.10.ELsmp #1 SMP Tue Feb 27 09:40:21 EST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

It worked fine for a few days, but we began seeing errors such as the
following:

Apr 23 12:19:59 rmanbackup kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device
Apr 23 12:19:59 rmanbackup kernel: dm-0: rw=0, want=34359738368, limit=20507254784
Apr 23 12:19:59 rmanbackup kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device
Apr 23 12:19:59 rmanbackup kernel: dm-0: rw=0, want=34359738368, limit=20507254784

Sure enough:

# blockdev --getsize /dev/backup0/backup 
20507254784

Also, when attempting to run e2fsck on the (unmounted) LVM:

# rpm -q e2fsprogs
e2fsprogs-1.35-12.4.EL4

# gdb e2fsck

Likely this is related to the error we're seeing in /var/log/messages
above?  I see mention of the ext2fs_test_bit() function in the lkml
archives.  Here for example:

  http://www.archivum.info/linux.kernel/2006-03/msg09063.html

I would imagine RH would be using this patch?

Here is some other information that may be useful:

Any suggestions?  Not sure where to start.
