Description Jan Synacek 2013-10-08 04:41:11 EDT
Description of problem:
When working with lvm from blivet, I keep seeing messages like this in the log:

  INFO:program: Running... lvm pvs --unit=k --nosuffix --nameprefixes --rows --unquoted --noheadings -opv_uuid,pe_start,vg_name,vg_uuid,vg_size,vg_free,vg_extent_size,vg_extent_count,vg_free_count,pv_count --config global {locking_type=4}  /dev/vda4
  INFO:program: File descriptor 8 (/dev/mapper/control) leaked on lvm invocation. Parent PID 19615: python

Those may not be a problem, but they are a real problem if blivet tries to parse the output of an external program and instead of the real output, it gets something like "File descriptor 8 (/dev/mapper/control) leaked on lvm invocation. Parent PID 19976: python".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run blivet so it executes thinlvpoolname() in devicelibs/
2. observe the output returned by the function

Actual results:
Output contains "File descriptor 8 (/dev/mapper/control) leaked on lvm invocation..." message and not the real output.

Expected results:
Output contains the name of the thin pool name as expected.

Comment 2 Jan Safranek 2013-10-08 04:49:32 EDT
Note that leaked file descriptors produce also several AVCs, like mdadm accessing /dev/mapper/control.
Comment 3 David Lehman 2013-10-23 15:48:19 EDT
Fixed by upstream commit dc64a4d3c74fd90f61 (master) in python-blivet-0.24-1 (f21/rawhide) and python-blivet-0.23.2-1 (f20).
