[linux-lvm] Error on unmounting XFS LVM snapshot



Hi,

Please Cc me on any replies.

I am seeing an error logged when unmounting an LVM snapshot of an XFS partition. Google doesn't give me much.

I have reproduced this error on a different system using a totally different disk sub-system (Mylex eXtremeRAID 3000) - the system below has an Adaptec 2400A.

Details are:

System is XFS on top of LVM on top of hardware RAID.

Software used:
Debian: 3.0 (Mostly)
Kernel: 2.4.21
Kernel patches: Debian standard kernel patches; XFS 1.3.0
LVM utils: 1.0.4-4 (Debian)
XFS utils: 2.5.6-1 (Debian)

Sequence of actions:
1: xfs_freeze -f /home
2: lvcreate -L 1G -s -n home_lv_bak /dev/vg0/home_lv
3: xfs_freeze -u /home
4: mount -t xfs -onouuid,ro,usrquota /dev/vg0/home_lv_bak /mnt/home
5: umount /mnt/home
6: lvremove -f /dev/vg0/home_lv_bak

On step 5 of above, an error is logged:

Logs:
Oct 17 17:23:44 jettero kernel: lvm - lvm_map: ll_rw_blk write for readonly LV /dev/vg0/home_lv_bak
Oct 17 17:23:44 jettero kernel: xfs_force_shutdown(lvm(58,10),0x1) called from line 351 of file xfs_rw.c. Return address = 0xc01fd6aa
Oct 17 17:23:44 jettero kernel: Filesystem "lvm(58,10)": I/O Error Detected. Shutting down filesystem: lvm(58,10)
Oct 17 17:23:44 jettero kernel: Please umount the filesystem, and rectify the problem(s)


There is no oops and machine seems stable enough, though it's only been running a couple of days since I first did this.

Is this anything to worry about? Is this a known problem? Are there any patches to fix it?

Thanks and regards,
Ronny Adsetts
