[Linux-cluster] GFS2 subdirectory hang



I have a 32-bit RHEL 5.3 Cluster Suite setup of two nodes with GFS2 file
systems on FC attached SAN. I have run into this issue twice now, where
attempts to access a certain directory within one of the GFS2 file
systems never return. Other directories and paths within that file
system work just fine.

The first time it happened, I had to crash the node to get it to release
the FS, then unmount it on both nodes, fsck it, remount it, and it was
fine. It has happened again (different path, different file system). A
simple "ls" in the directory (which has maybe 20 files in it) leaves the
process in an uninterruptible sleep state. I left it all night and it
never returned.

I'm not sure what other info would be useful on this, but this is what I
see from a gfs2_tool lockdump output for ls PID on that node:

G:  s:UN n:2/bf1df f:l t:SH d:EX/0 l:0 a:0 r:4
 H: s:SH f:aW e:0 p:9938 [ls] gfs2_lookup+0x44/0x90 [gfs2]
G:  s:SH n:5/bf9ce f: t:SH d:EX/0 l:0 a:0 r:3
 H: s:SH f:EH e:0 p:9938 [ls] gfs2_inode_lookup+0x12d/0x1f0 [gfs2]
G:  s:SH n:5/bf1df f: t:SH d:EX/0 l:0 a:0 r:3
 H: s:SH f:EH e:0 p:9938 [ls] gfs2_inode_lookup+0x12d/0x1f0 [gfs2]
G:  s:SH n:5/20c9b f: t:SH d:EX/0 l:0 a:0 r:3
 H: s:SH f:EH e:0 p:9938 [ls] gfs2_inode_lookup+0x12d/0x1f0 [gfs2]

I know there have been a few updates that have been released that
address a couple of GFS2 issues, but I don't recall seeing one for this
type of problem. I've got kernel 2.6.18-128.1.14el5PAE and
gfs2-utils-0.1.53-1.el5_3.3.

Thanks,
Eric
