SubjectIssue with dm snapshots
Hello

I encountered some problems using LVM and snapshots on linux 2.6.35.
The problem is that when there are several snapshots and some of them
reached theirs maximum space and disks are under heavy load - it causes
that the tasks that rely somehow on device mapper - just hung.
I use following script for testing this:



----code begin----
#!/bin/bash
set -x
DISK="/dev/sda"

# clean old stuff
killall -9 dd

umount /mnt/tmp2
for ((j = 0; j < 20; j++)) ; do
echo -n "Remove $j "
date
umount /mnt/m$j
lvremove -s -f /dev/VG/sn_$j
done
vgchange -a n VG
vgremove -f VG

# initialization
pvcreate $DISK 2> /dev/null
vgcreate VG $DISK 2> /dev/null
vgchange -a y VG
lvcreate -L40G -n lv VG
mkdir -p /mnt/tmp2
mkfs.xfs /dev/VG/lv
for ((j = 0; j < 20; j++)) do
lvcreate -L512M -n /dev/VG/sn_${j} VG
mkdir -p /mnt/m$j
done

# test
nloops=10
for ((loop = 0; loop < $nloops; loop++)) ; do
echo "loop $loop start ... "
mount /dev/VG/lv /mnt/tmp2

dd if=/dev/urandom of=/mnt/tmp2/file_tmp1 bs=1024 &
load_pid1=$!
dd if=/dev/urandom of=/mnt/tmp2/file_tmp2 bs=1024 &
load_pid2=$!

for ((j = 0; j < 20; j++)) ; do
echo -n "Convert $j "
date
lvconvert -s -c512 /dev/VG/lv /dev/VG/sn_$j
sleep 10
mount -t xfs -o nouuid,noatime /dev/VG/sn_$j /mnt/m$j
sync
done

for ((j = 0; j < 20; j++)) ; do
echo -n "Remove $j "
date
umount /mnt/m$j
lvremove -s -f /dev/VG/sn_$j
done

kill $load_pid1
wait $load_pid1
kill $load_pid2
wait $load_pid2

umount /mnt/tmp2
echo "done"
done
----code end----

I tested several kernels and I noticed that the problem occurs only on
kernels >= 2.6.29.
I tested even the newest 2.6.39-rc7 (git commit
9f381a61f58bb6487c93ce2233bb9992f8ea9211) and this script and
other tasks which rely on DM hungs (they are in uninterruptible sleep
state).

On older kernels (2.6.28, 2.6.27) this script works fine - it doesn't
hung neither itself nor any other applications.

To check where there is the problem I also used EXT3 instead of XFS, but
no difference.

I tried to find out which is the last git commit after 2.6.28 which with
this script works good. I used git bisect to do this and here is what
I've got:


# git bisect good
fcccf502540e3d752d33b2d8e976034dee81f9f7 is first bad commit
commit fcccf502540e3d752d33b2d8e976034dee81f9f7

filesystem freeze: implement generic freeze feature

The ioctls for the generic freeze feature are below.
o Freeze the filesystem
int ioctl(int fd, int FIFREEZE, arg)
fd: The file descriptor of the mountpoint
FIFREEZE: request code for the freeze
arg: Ignored
Return value: 0 if the operation succeeds. Otherwise, -1

o Unfreeze the filesystem
int ioctl(int fd, int FITHAW, arg)
fd: The file descriptor of the mountpoint
FITHAW: request code for unfreeze
arg: Ignored
Return value: 0 if the operation succeeds. Otherwise, -1
Error number: If the filesystem has already been unfrozen,
errno is set to EINVAL.

Seems like the last "good" commit was
c4be0c1dc4cdc37b175579be1460f15ac6495e9a - and the first bad is
fcccf502540e3d752d33b2d8e976034dee81f9f7.


Is it known issue?
