[linux-lvm] LVM raid1 mirror: interrupted resync isn't handled well



Hi, looking for some guidance as to whether or not this is expected to work, and if I'm doing anything wrong or can make any changes to fix this.

I've found that if LVM raid1 resync is interrupted, the volume immediately comes up in sync when next activated, without actually copying the remainder of the data.

I've reproduced this several times on a system with the root FS on an LVM raid1 (note, this is not LVM on top of a separate MD raid1 device, it's an LVM raid1 mirror created with 'lvconvert -m1 --type raid1 ...'):

- remove a disk containing one leg of an LVM raid1 mirror
- do enough IO that a lengthy resync will be required
- shutdown
- insert the removed disk
- reboot
- on reboot, the volume is resyncing properly
- before resync completes, reboot again
- this time during boot, the volume is activated and no resync is performed

But here's an example showing the same thing happening with just a volume deactivate/activate:

# lvs
  LV                                                              VG      Attr       LSize  Pool Origin Data%  Move Log Cpy%Sync Convert
...
  testlv                                                          testvg rwi-a-r---  5.00g                                 4.84    
  
# lvchange -an /dev/testvg/testlv

# lvchange -ay /dev/testvg/testlv

# lvs
  LV                                                              VG      Attr       LSize  Pool Origin Data%  Move Log Cpy%Sync Convert
...
  testlv                                                          testvg rwi-a-r---  5.00g                               100.00

Here's dmesg showing the start of resync:

md/raid1:mdX: active with 1 out of 2 mirrors
created bitmap (5 pages) for device mdX
mdX: bitmap initialized from disk: read 1 pages, set 4524 of 10240 bits
RAID1 conf printout:
 --- wd:1 rd:2
 disk 0, wo:0, o:1, dev:dm-18
 disk 1, wo:1, o:1, dev:dm-20
RAID1 conf printout:
 --- wd:1 rd:2
 disk 0, wo:0, o:1, dev:dm-18
 disk 1, wo:1, o:1, dev:dm-20
md: recovery of RAID array mdX
md: minimum _guaranteed_  speed: 4000 KB/sec/disk.
md: using maximum available idle IO bandwidth (but not more than 15000 KB/sec) for recovery.
md: using 128k window, over a total of 5242880k.

And the interrupted sync:

md: md_do_sync() got signal ... exiting

And the reactivation without resuming resync:

md/raid1:mdX: active with 2 out of 2 mirrors
created bitmap (5 pages) for device mdX
mdX: bitmap initialized from disk: read 1 pages, set 3938 of 10240 bits


Can anyone offer any advice? Am I doing something wrong? Or is this just a bug?

This is the lvm version (though I also grabbed the latest lvm2 from git.fedorahosted.org and had the same problem):

  LVM version:     2.02.100(2)-RHEL6 (2013-09-12)
  Library version: 1.02.79-RHEL6 (2013-09-12)
  Driver version:  4.23.6

I can try to dig through the sources to try to find the problem
(I have a fair amount of experience with MD debugging, none with LVM), but would appreciate any advice as to where to start (is this likely to be a problem in LVM, DM, MD, etc.).

Thanks!
