Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH] dm-lc.c: Audit return values of functions invoked in module init routine



Thanks for your patch, Kumar.

First of all, the code got clean
by reordering the initialization calls.
I fully agree with your patch at this point.
Thanks for your work.

But, I think there are a mistake to fix
before applying the patch.

What if registering lc_mgr_target failed
after registering lc_target succeeded?
I think we should unregister the lc_target in this case.
Am I wrong?

Looking for some code samples,
dm-snap.c and dm-thin.c have more than two targets to register
like dm-lc does.

Below is a code fragment from dm-snap.c .
It treats each failure in registering targets
independently with different labels.

// dm-snap.c
bad_exception_cache:
        exit_origin_hash();
bad_origin_hash:
        dm_unregister_target(&merge_target);
bad_register_merge_target:
        dm_unregister_target(&origin_target);
bad_register_origin_target:
        dm_unregister_target(&snapshot_target);
bad_register_snapshot_target:
        dm_exception_store_exit();

        return r;
}

Could you please fix this problem
and resend the patch again?
In addition, please rename the labels
from fail_ to bad_ .
The prefix bad_ seems to be the
code convention in device-mapper.
