SubjectRe: 3.10: discard/trim support on md-raid1?
From
Thanks for the replies,

After some further testing..
When I ran a repair on the md's sync_action, the system would reduce
I/O to the RAID-1 to 14kb/s or even less when it hit a certain number
of blocks and effectively locked the system every time.
It turned out to be a bad SSD (it also failed Intel's Secure Erase), I RMA'd it.
Interesting though that it did not drop out of the array but froze the
system (the failure scenario was odd).

Justin.
