Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH] dm-raid: check events in super_validate



Interesting. I had tried this with the latest stable kernel.org kernel (as of a month or so ago) and still hit it.

I'll mention that the initial resync on creating the raid1 can be interrupted okay; the problem only happens after that completes, and a disk is removed and re-added.

Here's what I've done to reproduce this:

- remove a disk containing one leg of an LVM raid1 mirror
- do enough IO that a lengthy recovery will be required
- insert the removed disk
- let recovery begin, but deactivate the LV before it completes
- activate the LV

This is the point where the recovery should start back up, but it doesn't. I haven't tried this in a few weeks, but am happy to try it again if it would help.
Confirmed (test output below).  I'll get started on this.  This code can be a bit tricky and I've been away from it for a while.  It will take me a bit to re-familiarize myself with it and review your patch.
I've tested this again with the latest code from upstream (kernel 3.14.0-rc4) and I cannot reproduce the problem there.  I'll see if I can find the last non-working version...
