[linux-lvm] Re: Oops unmounting snapshot of xfs filesystem

Stephenson, Dale wrote:
I have been running into an oops when umounting the snapshot of an xfs
filesystem, or following the umount.  For instance, a umount followed by an
lvremove will oops in the lvremove, while a mount/umount/mount/umount
sequence will oops on the second or third umount.

What does seem consistent is the error message logged on each umount.  Here
are the messages from a mount/umount sequence:

I've attached the oops (run through ksymoops) from this particular umount.
The snapshot is mounted ro,nouuid,norecovery.  The source of the snapshot
contains an unmounted xfs filesystem, which was unmounted at the time of
snapshot creation.  There has been no intentional I/O activity to the
snapshot, either.

It looks to me like xfs is trying to flush something to disk on the umount,
even though the filesystem is read only and no recovery.  I would not have
expected this.  Is it correct behavior?

I made the snapshot writeable, but kept the mount options the same.  I was
able to mount/umount many times without oops, I/O errors, or

I did notice similar behavior when a full snapshot returns an I/O error --
xfs_force_shutdown, with an oops following soon thereafter.

System details:
Celeron with 512 MB of RAM and WD 45GB harddrives.
128 MB swap, one vg consisting of a one-drive RAID 0.
Kernel 2.4.16 with 12/14/01 xfs CVS.
LVM CVS of 1/21/02 (functionally identical to 1.0.2, I believe).
LVM's linux-2.4.11-VFS-lock.patch.
xfs_fs_freeze() patch posted by Eric Sandeen.
Anselm Kruis' writable snapshot patch.

Had the same, disappeared when compiled the kernel with gcc-2.91.66 ! Seems to be a compiler issue.
