[dm-devel] LVM2 volume not recognised on cold restart



Hi, all. I'm using Kubuntu for a few years now. Distribution kernels after vmlinuz-2.6.35-28-generic fail to properly detect the Intel Software Raid (isw) 2 SATA disk stripe volume I have, and since my root FS is there, booting halts. Warm reboot then leaves my disks in a messed up offline state (according to BIOS). Only cold restart brings them back to life. The only way to correctly boot the PC is to first boot into vmlinuz-2.6.35-28-generic, which correctly recognises & initialises my disk setup, and then do a warm reboot into 3.0, 3.2, 3.10 kernel or whatever. Which I've been doing for the past 2 years. I also tried grabbing 3.10 vanilla sources from kernel.org, built the kernel, but alas, same failing to find root fs. Both kernels are booted as: "Kernel command line: root=/dev/mapper/vg0-root ro quiet splash" (where vg0-root is my root FS logical volume).

I'm no kernel hacker, but having analyzed dmesg output from running both kernels, it appears device-mapper broke compatibility in the newer version.

3.2.0-54-generic kernel (failing to properly boot after cold reboot):

2.6.35 kernel (working after cold/warm reboot):

(still working fine)
