Description Jonathan Earl Brassow 2009-02-10 16:58:29 EST
The cluster log server can seg fault.  This means that the kernel can no longer communicate with userspace and get any work done.
Comment 1 Jonathan Earl Brassow 2009-02-10 17:14:37 EST
If a mirror was started and then suspended very shortly after, the list of pent-up requests waiting for a checkpoint would be freed.  If one of those requests was POSTSUSPEND, it would be processed and would also try to free the list of pent-up requests.  Since this action was nested, the outer function would segfault because the list it was processing was free out from under it.

I have not seen any seg faults with the latest rpms, marking verified.
