[dm-devel] further testing w/ multipath ... and bugs



Hello,

I'm testing Mike Christie's START_STOP hwhandler and discovered a bunch of new, interesting, phenomenons :

A little context first :
o kernel 2.6.12-rc6 + qlogic discovery patch
o qla2342 (dual 2GB)
o EVA5000, Solaris-tagged connections

Here is a map create by multipath, fresh from boot :

eva1_lun2 (3600508b400014ba7000120000cf00000)
[size=50 GB][features="1 queue_if_no_path"][hwhandler="1 hp_sw"]
\_ round-robin 0 [active][best]
  \_ 0:0:0:2 sdb  8:16    [ready ][active]
  \_ 1:0:0:2 sdf  8:80    [ready ][active]
\_ round-robin 0 [enabled]
  \_ 0:0:1:2 sdd  8:48    [faulty][active]
  \_ 1:0:1:2 sdh  8:112   [faulty][active]

Start a background stream read with dd on that map.

Do a port disable on the FC switch port connected to HBA 0
Consistently at this moment I get the following in the logs :

 [<c0102104>] cpu_idle+0x64/0x80

If I wait long enough, I then get the following :

 rport-0:0-0: blocked FC remote port time out: removing target
 rport-0:0-1: blocked FC remote port time out: removing target

... which is rather new to me.

As a side effect, all sd associated are removed, uevents are sent signaling the disks have gone. This triggers checker removal on multipathd side in the current implementation.

Then, upon port reenable, sd are registred again with different minor than before. uevent adds get sent, multipath reconfigures the maps and ...

Here dd is now stuck in D-state.

I Will post more as I continue my hammering.
