Re: [dm-devel] [BUG] pvmove corrupting XFS filesystems (was Re: [BUG] Internal error xfs_dir2_data_reada_verify)

I apologize if I was not clear in my previous post.  I mean to say that
returning -EIO from dm, even in conjunction with your patch, is not
sufficient to fix the problem.

Specifically, I repeated the experiment with v3.8.2 patched as discussed
below, running my original script (repeated here for completeness):

   pvcreate /dev/vd[bc]
   vgcreate test /dev/vd[bc]
   lvcreate -L 8G -n vol test /dev/vdb
   mkfs.xfs -f /dev/mapper/test-vol
   mount -o noatime /dev/mapper/test-vol /mnt
   cd /mnt
   git clone ~/linux-stable
   cd /
   umount /mnt

   mount -o noatime /dev/mapper/test-vol /mnt
   pvmove -b /dev/vdb /dev/vdc
   sleep 2
   rm -rf /mnt/linux-stable

I obtained a string of errors that starts with this:

  [  166.596574] XFS (dm-1): metadata I/O error: block 0x805060 ("xfs_trans_read_buf_map") error 5 numblks 8

I used v3.8.2 with the following diff, including both your xfs patch
and my attempt to patch dm-raid1 to return EIO:

diff --git a/drivers/md/dm-raid1.c b/drivers/md/dm-raid1.c

 	if (bp->b_iodone)

So your patch is not sufficient to fix the problem, even if dm returns
-EIO instead of -EAGAIN.  My question is, what is dm supposed to return?
