Re: [linux-lvm] Bummer, another problem.



Just following up on my prior posting on this problem.  I've successfully
reproduced it (pretty easy) using Andrea's 2.2.19pre7aa1 kernel also, as
well as, stock 2.2.18+lvm patches.  Also reproduced with ext2, so it's not
related to just ext3 in this case.

I'm including kdb backtrace from a fresh reboot and vgchange of my volume
to try and get it back online, hence, with no good results.  The prior
logs I posted should still be applicable, it all looks the same output
wise here.  vgchange fails immediately following the "creating VGDA ..."
message if you use -v.

Looking at the backtrace it appears to be fail somewhere when it's reading
in the snapshot information from the snapshot that was active when the box
hung/locked up.

Joe, noted your comments regarding can't reproduce in commit logs.  Is
this in regards to the scripting I posted?  If so, you'll probably want to
write a little loop that creates a snapshot, waits 15 or so, removes the
snapshot, waits 15, and so on.  I've reproduced the lockup several times
doing this and now am stuck with dead LVM devices. :)  You would run that
while you have IO active on the snapshot source volume.  Make sure that
IO is continuous as well.

Let me know if there's anything else you may need.

Thanks,
