[linux-lvm] access through LVM causes D state lock up



I've been struggling for some time with a problem wherein at times
the machine locks up, with access throgh LVM hanging. I can read and 
write the physical volumes with "dd", but trying to read or write 
the logical volume hangs. pvdisplay also hangs. The PVs, which seem 
to accept writes just fine, are mdadm raid volumes.

I experienced this before under 5.7 and am now experiencing the same
with 6.0 using lvm2-2.02.72-8.el6_0.4.x86_64. I've also experienced 
it on entirely different hardware, with different controller chipsets.

I'm pretty much at my wits end and would appreciate any pointers as 
to where to look next.

The differences between our current lvm.conf and the default are as
follows:

<     filter = [ "a/.*/" ]

>    filter = [ "a|^/dev/md.*|", "a|^/dev/sd.*|", "a|^/dev/etherd/.*|","r|^/dev/ram.*|", "r|block|", "r/.*/" ]

When the machine locks up, /var/log/messages shows processes "blocked 
for more than 120 seconds" as shown below.  What other information 
should I be loooking to diagnose and resolve this issue?
