[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW lib/metadata/mirror.c



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	mbroz sourceware org	2009-12-09 19:53:39

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW 
	lib/metadata   : mirror.c 

Log message:
	Call explicitly suspend for temporary mirror layer.
	
	The memlock_inc() fix is wrong, memlock count is not
	propagated to long living process (clvmd) and just
	it underflow there.
	Also suspend is needed to pre-load precommited metadata
	on other nodes (remapping to error taget in this case).
	
	With explicit suspend we generate lock request and code
	can update memlock count.
	
	(Infinitely "locked" memory caused that fs_unlock() was not
	called properly and on cluster nodes remains
	old links in /dev/mapper for not active devices.)
	
	(N.B. failing of suspend call here is not handled as fatal
	error - the LV is going to be removed later anyway.)

 ====================================
+  Explicitly call suspend for temporary mirror layer.
   Allow use precommited metadata when a PV is missing.
   Add memlock information to do_lock_lv debug output.
   Never use distributed lock for LV in non-clustered VG.
