Description Matthias 2019-04-05 15:59:13 UTC
Description of problem:
systemd does not register the caching device of a bcache

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

tested not working with 4.gitcbf14c9.fc30 and ~rc2-1.fc30

works as expected with 10.git3bf819c.fc30

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a bcache installation and auto mount the bache device in fstab
2. Boot will hang because the bcache device cannot be found

Actual results:
After removing the bcache from fstab I found that systemd 241 does not register the caching device (ssd) for bcache.

ls /sys/fs/bcache will only show "register" and "register_quiet" and no UUID of the caching device.

Expected results:
It should be registered in the same way as with systemd 239. systemd 239 works  in F29 and also F30 (have to downgrade the rpm's).

Comment 1 Tomasz Torcz 2019-04-07 09:19:08 UTC
The fix is queued for systemd-stable https://github.com/systemd/systemd-stable/pull/47. It would be great to have get it backported before F30 final.

Comment 2 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2019-04-07 09:23:10 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 30-final by Fedora user ttorcz using the blocker tracking app because:

 This breaks the criterion of "installed/upgraded system must boot".
The cause and fix is known, requires backporting patch to systemd.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2019-04-09 00:43:37 UTC
Discussed at 2019-04-08 blocker review meeting: https://meetbot-raw.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2019-04-08/ . Rejected as a blocker as there is no official bcache support in Fedora - e.g. the installer does not support it - so this cannot violate the upgrade criteria which relate to out-of-the-box configurations. However, accepted as a freeze exception issue as the impact on anyone who *has* manually set up bcache support is very significant and any fix for this should ideally be sent out during a freeze if it is otherwise safe.
