Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2007:0959 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Updated kernel packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Update 1 2007-11-08 00:47:37 UTC

Description Jonathan Earl Brassow 2007-04-16 20:00:57 UTC
When checking the sync status of a region, there are times when we must not
block.  Like when we are attempting to map I/O for the first time or in a
context that must not block.

do_reads operates in a separate kernel thread and should be allowed to block. 
[Disallowing it to do so means cluster mirroring can never read-balance, among
other things.]
