[lvm-devel] [PATCH] Better clean-up of pvmove failures in a cluster


I don't see any reason why the following patch would be bad, but I'd
like to hear from others first.  In essence, I'm just trying to improve
the error code path.  This seems to improve things for pvmove when a
node in the cluster is not running 'cmirrord' as it should.  However, it
doesn't clean everything up when attempting to create a full cluster
mirror LV.  So there might still be some work left after this.


activation:  Remove empty DM devices when table fails to load.

As part of better error handling, remove DM devices that have been
successfully created but failed to load a table.  This can happen
when pvmove'ing in a cluster and the cluster mirror daemon is not
running on a remote node - the mapping table failing to load as a
result.  In this case, any revert would work on other nodes running
cmirrord because the DM devices on those nodes did succeed in loading.
However, because no table was able to load on the non-cmirrord nodes,
there is no table present that points to what needs to be reverted.
This causes the empty DM device to remain on the system without being
present in any LVM representation.
