SubjectRe: [PATCH 2.5.71-mm1] aio process hang on EINVAL
From
Date
I have tested 2.5.72-mm1 and, as expected, it fixes the hang.
Interestingly, the mm1 code behaves differently than generic
2.5.72 -- in the error case (like aio read from /dev/zero),
2.5.72-mm1 returns an EINVAL error on io_submit(). In 2.5.72
io_submit succeeds and the i/o itself get an error. I prefer
getting the error on io_submit.
