[dm-devel] Re: Help tracking down problem --- endless loop in __find_get_block_slow

It turns out N>6 is variable. But large enough and it will hang. Sugests
some kind of race I am afraid.

I get the same message again and again all over (this trace with
count=100 and a BUG() and panic inserted into buffer.c)

Feb 23 13:38:34 localhost kernel: __find_get_block_slow() failed.
block=101, b_blocknr=100
Feb 23 13:38:34 localhost kernel: b_state=0x00000010, b_size=2048
Feb 23 13:38:34 localhost kernel: device blocksize: 2048

Ad inf. The output of the BUG() is show below. My questions remain:

1. Whos fault is this?
2. How do I fix/avoid this problem?

Regards Thomas
