Description Christine Caulfield 2005-05-10 06:25:05 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050504 Fedora/1.0.3-4 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
If an application opens an already existing lockspace, the DLM ref count is still incremented. This means that when all lockspaces are removed the DLM does not tidy up. Any attempt to rmmod the dlm module results in a kernel panic.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start clvmd
2. killall -9 clvmd (this leaves the lockspace in place)
3. clvmd
4. killall clvmd (this closes the lockspace)
5. rmmod dlm


Actual Results:  "grep dlm /proc/slabinfo" shows the DLM slabs still in place, "ps -ef|grep dlm" shows the DLM processes still running.
modprobe dlm will panic the kernel as it tries to recreate the slab.

Expected Results:  Something much less spectacular!
Deleting the last lockspace should cause the DLM to tidy up.
