Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH] clear seg valid when resetting bi_idx

Mike Christie wrote:
In __end_that_request_first if the bio is partially completed blk_recalc_rq_segments will reset the segment values. If the bio is later remapped and resent becuase of an error, we restore bi_idx but the segment values are left to the partially completed state causing many fun problems when blk_rq_map_sg is called in SCSI.

The attached patch clears the BIO_SEG_VALID bit, so the segment values are recalculated when it is resent. It was built and tested against 2.6.4-udm1.

I don't think this is 100% correct. It gets the correct number of segments counted so no oops from SCSI, but when we resend it the bio_vec's bv_offset and bv_len would sitll be in the state __end_that_request_direst left them.

Would it be ok to just add a curr_bv_offset and curr_bv_len to the bio that is writeable leaving the bio_vec readonly, or is the correct fix for DM to do a deep record of the bio?
