[linux-lvm] "vgchange -a n VG" freezes, other LVM commands too



I just wanted to deactivate a volume group - I used:

vgchange -a n volume_group


Unfortunately, it didn't work and it seems frozen - the command is still being executed, and is in "D" state.

Any other LVM command (lvs etc.) freezes as well (D state), adding +1 to the system load average.

This is what happens when I start lvs with verbose/debug parameters:



# lvs -vvvv -dddd
#lvmcmdline.c:871         Processing: lvs -vvvv -dddd

And it stays there.

Any clues how to unblock it?


If it is important, some other kernel thread (drbd0_worker from DRBD) is/was accessing that volume group when I started that command.
