Re: [linux-lvm] kernel-Oops in 2.4.17 with LVM-1.0.2



Urs,

lvm_map() calls buffer_IO_error() unconditionally in the error case.

Because function lvm_user_bmap(), which is called for the LV_BMAP ioctl,
sets up a temporary buffer_head structure, but just fills in the necessary
fields, buffer_IO_error() causes the NULL pointer derefenrence by trying
to call bh->b_end_io.

The following patch fixes that for lvm in 2.4.17 by
calling buffer_IO_error conditionally in lvm_map().

Regards,
Heinz    -- The LVM Guy --

*** Software bugs are stupid.
    Nevertheless it needs not so stupid people to solve them ***
