Description Jonathan Earl Brassow 2007-04-12 15:39:39 EDT
if the log device fails in device-mapper mirroring, writes will return EIO. 
This is due to the fact that the log must have a valid representation of the
state of a mirror before the write occurs.

It is now possible to requeue I/Os to device-mapper core when a log device dies.
 This means that we can hold the writes until the mirror has been reconfigured -
obviating the need to return EIOs.
