[linux-lvm] snapshot error with xfs and disk I/O



Hello ,

There seem to be serious problems with snapshots , lvm2 and xfs.
As soon as there is a slight amount of disk I/O during snapshotting
a logical volume with xfs , the following kind of kernel panic occurs:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
root test cashnet nl [/root]# umount /backup
root test cashnet nl [/root]# lvremove -f /dev/data/dbackup
Segmentation fault

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The system contains two disks , each 80 Gb , with two volume groups :
    PV /dev/md3    VG data     lvm2 [55.30 GB / 4.52 GB free]
  PV /dev/sda3   VG shares   lvm2 [9.32 GB / 0    free]
  PV /dev/sdb3   VG shares   lvm2 [9.32 GB / 3.02 GB free]
  Total: 3 [73.94 GB] / in use: 3 [73.94 GB] / in no VG: 0 [0   ]

one vg is created with a pv of a software raid device , /dev/md3
the other on a pv consisting of two partitions on each disk.
Both have a lv of the same name, data and shares.
>From each logical volume every ten minutes a snapshot was taken
from cron , meanwhile I was running a script that caused increasing disk I/O
very slowly. After two days running , the following happened :
6:50am  up 2 days 19:13,  1 user,  load average: 2.53, 3.06, 4.27
---------------
  Logical volume "dbackup" already exists in volume group "data"
mount: /dev/data/dbackup already mounted or /backup busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/mapper/data-dbackup is already mounted 
on /backup
  Can't remove open logical volume "dbackup"
---------------
The script couldn't do anything anymore with the dbackup snapshot (snapshot
of the data LV).
I stopped the script and unmounted manually /backup whereafter I gave
the command :
lvremove -f /dev/data/dbackup and then the kernel panic , as shown above
happened. The same happened on the original server , that has an areca
hw raid controller , the snapshotting of a LV with xfs goes fine , until at a 
certain point when moderate disk I/O happens , then the kernel panics
and oopses out of service.
Are there patches to fix this problem?

TIA

sincerely
Wim bakker
