Update: [dm-devel] Disk io deadlocks during large-file io



With md raid1 instead of dm-mirror i get no lockups during similar
workloads or any other workload i've managed to produce. Everything is
the same except that i'm using md instead of dm-mirror.

See previous mail for complete information about the problem, or feel
free to ask me for any further details.
I'll try running dm-mirror on two other disks i've got which is on
another controller to see if i can reproduce the problem there also.
