[dm-devel] [PATCH 0/7] patches: fix dm-raid1 race, bug 502927



Hi

Here is the serie of 7 patches to hold write bios on dm-raid1 until 
dmeventd does its job. It fixes bug 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=502927 . The first 6 patches 
are preparatory, they just move the code around, the last patch does the 
fix.

I tested the thing, I managed to reproduce the bug (by manually stopping 
dmeventd with STOP signal, failing primary mirror leg and writing to the 
device) and I also verified that the patches fix the bug.

For non-dmeventd operation, the current behavior is wrong and I just keep 
it as wrong as it was. There is no easy fix. It is just assume that if the 
user doesn't use dmeventd, he can't activate failed disks again.
