[PATCH 2/2] Revert "Restore force switch of md array to readonly at reboot time."

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

This reverts commit 2b25000bf5157c28d8591f03f0575248a8cbd900.

Justin provided a test case that can reliably trigger the md_write_start
BUG_ON(mddev->ro == 1) at shutdown time.  Kernels prior to 2.6.27 do not fail
this test because the array remains readwrite.  The block layer does not
quiesce in-flight writes after setting the readonly flag so there will need to
be new infrastructure (stop writes at shutdown), or support for barriers
before MD arrays can reliably force readonly while writes may be in flight.
