Bug Fix Advisory device-mapper-multipath bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:0864-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-06-13
Last updated on: 2011-06-13
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux EUS (v. 5.6.z server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Long Life (v. 5.6 server)

Details

Updated device-mapper-multipath packages that fix one bug are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The device-mapper-multipath packages provide tools to manage multipath devices
by giving the "dm-multipath" kernel module instructions on what to do, as well
as by managing the creation and removal of partitions for Device-Mapper devices.

This update fixes the following bug:

* After acquiring their resource locks, multipathd's threads did not check if
they were canceled before accessing their resources. This caused multipathd to
close with a segmentation fault on shutdown, if a thread attempted to access a
resource after it was canceled. Now all multipathd threads check if they are
canceled before accessing their resources. (BZ#704470)

All users of device-mapper-multipath are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which fix this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
