[dm-devel] Resizing multipath maps: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument



  Hi.  I'm trying to resize multipath maps, but there appears to be
 something wrong with the ioctl call...  I resized the "www" volume on
 the storage array from 25GB to 45GB, and attempted to reload it on the
 host, which is running 2.6.23-rc3 and multipath-tools 0.4.7.  It
 resulted in the following:

root atalanta:~# multipath -ll

device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
Command failed

  Ultimately I found no other way to make this work but to umount the
 file system, then run "multipath -f www; multipath", which kind of
 defeated the point of fancy online resizing support in the file system
 and storage array since I need downtime to do it.  Is there any other
 way to make online resizing work?

  By the way, I think the error is happening in the kernel, due to the
 following messages appearing in dmesg after the rescan and multipath
 steps:
