Doc Text:
When a process was reading Virtual Data Optimizer (VDO) sysfs entries while a VDO volume was starting up or shutting down, the process and the VDO task sometimes became unresponsive or terminated unexpectedly. With this update, the sysfs entries are created and released at the correct time. As a result, the described problem no longer occurs

Description Oneata Mircea Teodor 2018-04-16 07:03:27 UTC
This bug has been copied from bug #1559692 and has been proposed to be backported to 7.5 z-stream (EUS).

Comment 3 Jakub Krysl 2018-05-03 15:35:29 UTC
Using the reproducer I was not able to get vdo to hang or get any calltrace. Reading from /sys correctly produces either value ('0') or error ('cat: /sys/kvdo/vdo0/statistics/data_blocks_used: No such file or directory'). The start/stop cycle keeps going.
No regressions found as regression testing passed.
