RE: [dm-devel] failover does not work with rdac device handler



Hello Chandra,
   I have not seen this patch being submitted to mainstream kernel. When are you planning to submit this patch? Should I open a bugzilla for tracking purposes?

Thanks
Babu Moger

Sorry, I sent an imcomplete patch. Here is the correct one.

BTW, The panic you saw is caused by the line (one of the lines you
added):

dev = container_of(&scsi_dh_data, struct scsi_device, scsi_dh_data);

in scsi_dh_release(). We cannot use pointer in a structure to get the
parent structure.

chandra

Keep a reference count of attaches, so that same number of detaches are allowed.
