[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW lib/locking/locking.c



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	mbroz sourceware org	2010-03-31 17:23:57

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW 
	lib/locking    : locking.c 

Log message:
	Always use blocking lock for VGs and orphan locks.
	
	Because we have now strong rule for lock ordering:
	- VG locks must be taken in alphabetical order
	- ORPHAN locks must be the last
	vgs_locked() is now not needed.
	
	This fixes problem with orphan locking, e.g.
	vgremove VG1    |    vgremove VG2
	lock(VG1)       |    lock(VG2)
	lock(ORPHAN)    |    lock(ORPHAN) -> fail, non-blocking

 Version 2.02.63 -  
 ================================
+  Always use blocking lock for VGs and orphan locks.
   Allocate all segments memory from vg private mempool.
   Return newly allocated PV segment after segment split.
   Optimise PV segments search for the most last segment search case.
