[lvm-devel] PATCH REPOST] Fix clvmd segfault

My last patch failed to include the pthread unlock.


clvmd: Fix segfault.

I don't know /why/ it is failing... and I don't even know
exactly where the problem gets started, but here is what
I've found so far...

>From the core dump:
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

'f' is being dereferenced in persistent_filter_wipe - initially provided by
lvmcache_label_scan, here:

463             if (!(iter = dev_iter_create(cmd->filter, (full_scan == 2) ? 1 : 0))) {
464                     log_error("dev_iter creation failed");
465                     goto out;
466             }

'cmd->filter' isn't set because 'refresh_toolcontext' failed in

604             ret = refresh_toolcontext(cmd);
605             init_full_scan_done(0);
606             lvmcache_label_scan(cmd, 2);
(gdb) p ret
$2 = 0

'refresh_toolcontext' failed at 

client=0x114f6090, msg=(nil), len=0, csid=(nil), xid=10574
  /etc/lvm/lvm.conf: mmap failed: Bad file descriptor
  /etc/lvm/lvm.conf: munmap failed: Invalid argument
  /etc/lvm/lvm.conf: close failed: Bad file descriptor
  Failed to load config file /etc/lvm/lvm.conf

Is the file descriptor being lost, corrupted, etc?

This patch is a bandaid for the problem.
