[linux-lvm] Kernel bug with snapshots



Hi,

in the last days I played around with Kernel 2.6.9, LVM2, and multiple
snapshots of the Logical Volume leading to some system freezes. The
Volume Group is setup on top of a mirrored device (md). I decided to
switch to kernel 2.6.11-rc1 with Device Mapper patches 2.6.10-udm1
(without patch 29) and test again.

What I did was:

1. created a 2 GByte LV (lv_test) with XFS and mounted the filesystem.
2. Wrote some data to lv_test.
3. Created snapshot using

	lvcreate -L 200M -p r -n lv_snap_01 /dev/vg00/lv_test

4. Mounted lv_snap_01 (read only, no uuid)
5. Removed some files and wrote some data to lv_test
6. Created snapshot lv_snap_02 and mounted it (read only, no uuid)
7. Repeated step 5 and created snapshot lv_snap_03
8. Wrote some data (about 30 MByte) to lv_test
9. While kcopyd(?) was running I tried to remove lv_snap_01:

	lvremove -f /dev/vg00/lv_snap_01

The lvremove instruction terminated with

	Segmentation fault

and I received the following kernel messages on console:

Looks likes a bug...

Kind regards,
