Hi,

I'm looking for clarification on the following kernel messages that I
received during a mount of a recently-created raid1 device. I'm using
a 2.2.19 kernel (close to stock, actually Debian's Potato kernel,
which is stock +~ BigPhysArea patch), which I've then patched with
Ingo Molnar's 0.90 RAID layer (I used the correct 2.2.19 patches).

Here's what I did to create the /dev/md0 device:

# partition /dev/sda5 and /dev/sdb5 to participate in raid1
# create appropriate /etc/raidtab (listed at end of email)
mkraid /dev/md0
# following commands were executing while partitions were
# still re-syncing (if that's relevant)
mke2fs /dev/md0
# /dev/md0 is configured as /home as listed in fstab (at end of email)
mount /home

I then received the following kernel messages on mounting /dev/md0:

Oct 9 15:56:49 newton kernel: set_blocksize: b_count 1, dev md(9,0), block 31058688, from 00000900

Oct 9 15:56:49 newton kernel: md0: blocksize changed during read
Oct 9 15:56:49 newton kernel: nr_blocks changed to 32 (blocksize 4096, j 7764672, max_blocks 15868160)

Interestingly enough, I now no longer get any kernel messages when I
mount or unmount the raid1 partition. Could this possibly be because
md0's no longer in the resync process? I did a linux-kernel and
linux-raid mailing list search as well as a google and usenet search
and found a few messages posting the same or related scenaria but no
replies to their questions. Casually examining the source code did
not provide any obvious clues to me. Any advice is greatly
appreciated.

Thanks,
Daniel

ps: kindly cc me on replies if possible.
