[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW lib/activate/dev_manager.c



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	jbrassow sourceware org	2010-08-26 14:21:52

Log message:
	This patch fixes a potential for I/O to hang and LVM commands
	to block when a mirror under a snapshot suffers a failure.
	
	The problem has to do with label scanning.  When a mirror suffers
	a failure, the kernel blocks I/O to prevent corruption.  When
	LVM attempts to repair the mirror, it scans the devices on the
	system for LVM labels.  While mirrors are skipped during this
	scanning process, snapshot-origins are not.  When the origin is
	scanned, it kicks up I/O to the mirror (which is blocked)
	underneath - causing the label scan (an thus the repair operation)
	to hang.
	
	This patch simply bypasses snapshot-origin devices when doing
	labels scans (while ignore_suspended_devices() is set).  This
	fixes the issue.
