Hi, Malahal

This is the additional test results of mirrored log. Currently your
patch is proposed by "RFC", and these might be known issues to you,
but I hope this reports would be helpful to improve your patch.
Any comments are welcome.


0. Test environment
  - LVM2.2.02.43 with mirrored log patch
  - vg00 is composed of 8 PVs (/dev/sd[c-j])


1. SIGSEGV at converting a core log to a mirrored log

  # dmsetup status
  vg00-lv00_mimage_1: 0 24576 linear
  vg00-lv00_mimage_0: 0 24576 linear
  vg00-lv00: 0 24576 mirror 2 253:3 253:4 24/24 1 AA 1 core

  # lvconvert -m1 --mirroredlog /dev/vg00/lv00
  Segmentation fault

  # lvconvert -m2 --mirroredlog /dev/vg00/lv00
  Segmentation fault


2. Fail at conversion from 2 legs to 3 legs

  lv00 in vg00 has 2 legs (2 log legs and 2 data legs), and when it is
  converted to the structure with 3 lets, the conversion fails.

  vg00-lv00 (253:5)
   + vg00-lv00_mimage_1 (253:4)
   + vg00-lv00_mimage_0 (253:3)
   + vg00-lv00_mlog (253:2)
      + vg00-lv00_mlog_mimage_1 (253:1)
      + vg00-lv00_mlog_mimage_0 (253:0)

  # lvconvert -m2 --mirroredlog /dev/vg00/lv00
    device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: No such device or address
    Failed to lock lv00
  # dmsetup status
  vg00-lv00_mimage_2: 0 8192 linear    <-- data leg is created
  vg00-lv00_mimage_1: 0 24576 linear
  vg00-lv00_mlog_mimage_1: 0 8192 linear
  vg00-lv00_mimage_0: 0 24576 linear
  vg00-lv00_mlog_mimage_0: 0 8192 linear
  vg00-lv00_mimagetmp_2: 0 24576 error <-- temporary data log exists
  vg00-lv00_mlog: 0 8192 mirror 2 253:1 253:2 8/8 1 AA 1 core
  vg00-lv00: 0 24576 mirror 2 253:4 253:5 24/24 1 AA 3 disk 253:3 A


3. Fail at conversion from disk log to mirrored log

  # dmsetup status
  vg00-lv00_mimage_1: 0 24576 linear
  vg00-lv00_mimage_0: 0 24576 linear
  vg00-lv00_mlog: 0 8192 linear
  vg00-lv00: 0 24576 mirror 2 253:1 253:2 24/24 1 AA 3 disk 253:0 A

  # lvconvert -m1 --mirroredlog /dev/vg00/lv00
  Logical volume lv00 already has 1 mirror(s).

   => disk log should be converted to mirrored log?

  # lvconvert -m2 --mirroredlog /dev/vg00/lv00
  device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: No such device or address
  Failed to lock lv00
  # dmsetup status
  vg00-lv00_mimage_2: 0 8192 linear
  vg00-lv00_mimage_1: 0 24576 linear
  vg00-lv00_mimage_0: 0 24576 linear
  vg00-lv00_mimagetmp_2: 0 24576 error
  vg00-lv00_mlog: 0 8192 linear
  vg00-lv00: 0 24576 mirror 2 253:1 253:2 24/24 1 AA 3 disk 253:0 A

   => disk log should be converted to mirrored log with 3 legs?
