Description Mark Fasheh 2005-07-08 02:15:21 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040803

Description of problem:
kjournald is missing a check to JFS_UNMOUNT before it schedules away in it's
main function (kjournald() in fs/jbd/journal.c). If a journal is initialized and
quickly shut down (as may happen during OCFS2 recovery of a node) the call to
journal_destroy() will hang in journal_kill_thread() waiting for kjournald() to
see the JFS_UNMOUNT. A very small patch to fix this can be found at:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce: journal_init_inode() journal_load() journal_destroy()

Patch looks OK to me; it has been proposed upstream and I've ACKed it there too.
