Re: [linux-lvm] LVM 0.9 snapshot and ext3

Basically, the oops is from an assertion (debugging check) in the ext3
journal code testing for a condition that _shouldn't_ happen.  In this case
"!buffer_locked(bh_in)", so it is getting a locked buffer (in the middle of
I/O) when it doesn't expect it.  The ext3 0.0.5b code (which you are using)
should have been able to handle basic I/O failures and such, but this
looks a bit unusual.

Maybe LVM isn't cleaning up the buffer properly when it runs out of space
in the snapshot...  Also, I haven't really dug into LVM snapshots much,
but shouldn't all the remapping be done on the read-only copy?  Do LVM
snapshots store the modified blocks in the original LV, and the old (frozen)
blocks in the snapshot LV, or vice versa?  If ext3 is writing to the
original LV, it should never run out of space.  At most, the read-only
copy (which will not be ext3) should disappear - I'm not sure what LVM
does in this case.

Note also that 0.0.5b with writeback mode is still fairly untested,
so there is some chance it is an ext3 issue.  Stephen previously wrote
that data=ordered may actually be faster than data=writeback.

I've CC'd this to Stephen in case he has any ideas.

Cheers, Andreas
