[dm-devel] [RFC][PATCH][BUGFIX] dm-raid1: fix NULL pointer dereference during suspend procedure


On 2.6.33-rc1 kernel, I hit the bug when I suspended the failed
mirror by dmsetup command.

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000020

Here is a patch to fix this bug.

In case that the DM_RAID1_HANDLE_ERRORS flag is set, the recent dm-raid1
keeps failed bios in the hold list and those bios are processed when
the mirror device is being suspended. This process expects __rh_lookup()
returns a valid region address, but it could returns NULL if the error
recovery had failed.

This bug could be fixed by preventing region data from being released
when error recovery is failed, but I think that it is more complicated.

I appreciate your comments.
