Description Jonathan Earl Brassow 2007-04-16 20:03:40 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #236624 +++

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.]
