Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-08-09 18:59:28 UTC
I have WD Passport drive I use for virt machines and random testing.

Without thinking, I ripped the drive out of the usb port before unmounting it.

Shortly after abrt popped up a "kernel oops" bubble.

The trace it found is:

Although, something is a little strange, since
uname -r says 2.6.32-54.el6.x86_64 and the trace above says 2.6.32-37.el6.x86_64

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-08-09 20:18:39 UTC
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-08-18 21:28:56 UTC
Thank you for your bug report. This issue was evaluated for inclusion
in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Unfortunately, we
are unable to address this request in the current release. Because we
are in the final stage of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 development, only
significant, release-blocking issues involving serious regressions and
data corruption can be considered.

If you believe this issue meets the release blocking criteria as
defined and communicated to you by your Red Hat Support representative,
please ask your representative to file this issue as a blocker for the
current release. Otherwise, ask that it be evaluated for inclusion in
the next minor release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 4 Don Zickus 2010-11-09 21:38:57 UTC

Is this WARN_ON_ONCE harmful?  It seems like the usb drive disappeared with dirty buffers and the OS doesn't know what to do with it hence the warning?


Comment 5 Eric Sandeen 2011-03-16 17:21:26 UTC
sorry for missing the question .  :(  I don't think it's particularly harmful to the system, though possibly not so great for the -filesystem-

This should be fixed upstream now, with 7bf0dc9b0ca9e9b6524b1f70e0898c7f11eb10be

in 2.6.33 ... and fixed for RHEL6 (on ext3) by bug #591466, open for RHEL6 (for ext2) in bug #679930

Ray, I'll probably dup this to that one, and you can retest once it's fixed?  If it turns out to be a different issue we can reopen this.
