Description Nate Straz 2008-04-03 12:47:27 EDT
Description of problem:

When trying to import GNBD devices on a ppc system from another ppc system, I
get the following error:

[root@kent ~]# gnbd_import -i basic
gnbd_import: created gnbd device sdc
gnbd_recvd: ERROR cannot get timestamp : Invalid argument
gnbd_import: ERROR gnbd_recvd failed

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. on nodeA: gnbd_export -c -d /dev/sdc1 -e sdc
2. on nodeB: gnbd_import -i nodeA
Actual results:
See above

Expected results:
The import should work.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Ben Marzinski 2008-04-16 17:08:53 EDT
The problem is that all of our userspace programs on the ppc64 are 32bit
binaries, and the gnbd kernel module does not handle ioctl32 calls.  The
solution is either to build the userspace programs (at least gnbd_recvd) as
64bit binaries, or to make the gnbd kernel module handle ioctl32 calls.
