Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 295531
RFE: add the ability to get a lockdump out of gfs through sysrq
Last modified: 2010-01-11 22:27:31 EST
While I still feel this would be useful, it requires registering a new
sysrq sequence. Since the sysrq sequences are designed and implemented
by the upstream community, and gfs1 is not upstream (nor will it ever be)
the decision was made to not implement this fix. It would be too easy
for upstream to make changes that are not compatible with the fix.
So let's keep it a patch for now.
Note that we may still want to do this for gfs2, but that's documented
in a different bugzilla record.
