Bug Fix Advisory gfs2-kmod bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2008:0501-4
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2008-06-02
Last updated on: 2008-06-02
Affected Products: RHEL Cluster-Storage (v. 5 server)
RHEL Cluster-Storage EUS (v. 5.2.z server)

Details

Updated gfs2-kmod packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.2 (kernel release 2.6.18-92.el5).

The gfs2-kmod packages contain modules that provide the ability to mount
and use GFS2 file systems.

These updated packages fix the following bug:

* during heavy I/O, GFS2 could get stuck in the readv() function, waiting
for a pagelock. This would cause the filesystem to hang.

NOTE: While single-node stability has been improved with this update, GFS2
remains a Technology Preview feature.

Users are advised to upgrade to these latest gfs2-kmod packages, which
resolve this issue and are updated for use with the 2.6.18-92.el5 kernel
included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2.
