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



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	jbrassow sourceware org	2012-05-01 19:21:25

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW 
	lib/metadata   : lv_manip.c 
	test/shell     : lvconvert-repair-snapshot.sh 
	                 snapshots-of-mirrors.sh 
	                 vgreduce-removemissing-snapshot.sh 

Log message:
	Disallow snapshots of mirror segment types.
	
	Snapshots of RAID logical volumes are allowed (including "raid1").  However,
	snapshots of "mirror" logical volumes has been disallowed due to unsolvable
	issues inherent to the design.  The fact that mirroring (dm-raid1.c) must
	stop all I/O as the result of a failure and wait for userspace intervention
	can lead to a circular dependency if userspace is simultaneously waiting for
	snapshots (on mirrors) to make an I/O update before proceeding.
	
	Various snapshot on mirror tests have been removed as a result.
