Re: [dm-devel] do not disable ext4 discards on first discard failure? [was: Re: dm snapshot: ignore discards issued to the snapshot-origin target]

Could you please try the following patch? It has a bunch of small tweaks
to the discard stack in it. I'll split it up before posting for real but
I'd like to know if it fixes your issue...


block/libata/scsi: Various logical block provisioning fixes

 - Add sysfs documentation for the discard topology parameters

 - Fix discard stacking problem

 - Switch our libata SAT over to using the WRITE SAME limits

 - UNMAP alignment needs to be converted to bytes

 - Only report alignment and zeroes_data if the device supports discard

+Description:
+		Devices that support discard functionality may have
+		internal limits on the number of bytes that can be
+		trimmed or unmapped in a single operation. Some storage
+		protocols also have inherent limits on the number of
+		blocks that can be described in a single command. The
+		discard_max_bytes parameter is set by the device driver
+		to the maximum number of bytes that can be discarded in
+		a single operation. Discard requests issued to the
+		device must not exceed this limit. A discard_max_bytes
+		value of 0 means that the device does not support

+What:		/sys/block/<disk>/queue/discard_zeroes_data
+Date:		May 2011
+Contact:	Martin K. Petersen <martin petersen oracle com>
+Description:
+		Devices that support discard functionality may return
+		stale or random data when a previously discarded block
+		is read back. This can cause problems if the filesystem
+		expects discarded blocks to be explicitly cleared. If a
+		device reports that it deterministically returns zeroes
+		when a discarded area is read the discard_zeroes_data
+		parameter will be set to one. Otherwise it will be 0 and
+		the result of reading a discarded area is undefined.
