Description Vidar Langseid 2002-01-16 04:02:57 EST
Description of Problem:

I created a RAID-1 on rh72
It seems to work just find but I noticed this messages in the log afterwards:
kernel: md: badblocks(pid 1435) used obsolete MD ioctl, upgrade your software to
use new ictls.
I guess this happend when I formated the raid device

Maybe this is related to raidtools, but I filed the bug to e2fsprogs

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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create partitions
2. Create raidtab with RAID1
3. mkraid /dev/md0
4. mke2fs -c -m 0 -j /dev/md0

Actual Results:
As mention.. Got a message in the kernel log

Expected Results:

Additional Information:
Comment 1 Florian La Roche 2002-04-03 09:14:10 EST
This should be some kernel message. I think it is already fixed in newer
kernels. Right?

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-03 09:17:09 EST
Wrong. If you use an obsolete ioctl the e2fsprogs needs fixing
Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2004-04-20 09:44:48 EDT
Fixed in rawhide in rpm e2fsprogs-1.35-7.1 or newer.
