mdadm 3.2.3 and adding metadata 1.0 bitmaps

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


Hi Neil,

I'm testing out RHEL 6.3 Alpha which is shipped with mdadm 3.2.3 and kernel-
2.6.32-257, which may not contain all the latest md bitmap fixes.  Before I go 
diving into the upstream vs. RHEL kernel changes, I thought I would try the list 
first.

The problem I'm seeing is when I try to grow a RAID1 array, adding a write 
intent bitmap to a metadata 1.0 array:


** Add internal write bitmap with metadata=1.0

mdadm --stop /dev/md100
mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdc1
mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdd1
mdadm --verbose --create /dev/md100 --level=1 --raid-devices=2 --metadata=1.0 
/dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1

[wait for resync]

mdadm -Gb internal /dev/md100
mdadm: failed to set internal bitmap.

[dmesg]

attempt to access beyond end of device
sdd1: rw=192, want=4297087785, limit=2120517
attempt to access beyond end of device
sdc1: rw=192, want=4297087785, limit=2120517


** Same experiment with metadata=1.0, mdadm-508a7f1 fails.
** Same experiment with metadata=1.1 works fine.


Looking at the changes in super1.c :: add_internal_bitmap1(), I see the switch 
block around the minor_version has changed in mdadm 3.2.3. In the past, the code 
around the comment, /* remove '1 ||' when we can set offset via sysfs */, 
unconditionally set the room value to 6, offset to 2.  In the 3.2.3 version, 
when I try adding the bitmap, may_change is set, room is left at 8, and offset 
0.  Because of the latter, room is recalculated to "start bitmap on a 4K 
boundary with enough space for the bitmap"... bits=17, room=8, and offset=(-8).  
The final little endian / long cast ends up:

	sb->bitmap_offset = (long)__cpu_to_le32(offset);
JL: sb->bitmap_offset = 4294967288

The failing sequence of events were identical with RHEL's version of mdadm 3.2.3 
and the one I grabbed from git (mdadm-508a7f1).  Here is some additional 
information from gdb that might be relevant should this indeed be a bug:

  device_uuid = ".\177{[\022$\241.31\267\322\305C'\216", devflags = 0 '\000',
