Description Josef Bacik 2007-03-13 15:45:24 UTC
I hit this while trying to reproduce bz 231910, I'm not sure if its related or 
not but I'm filing a different bz to be sure.  I got this while doing an 
rm -rf on a directory with a bunch of files (a kernel source tree) and doing a 
du -h on another node on the same directory.  The node doing the du is the one 
who asserted login: GFS2: fsid=rhel5cluster:gfs2lv1.0: 
fatal: invalid metadata block
GFS2: fsid=rhel5cluster:gfs2lv1.0:   bh = 1752064 (type: exp=10, found=8)
GFS2: fsid=rhel5cluster:gfs2lv1.0:   function = ea_foreach_i, file = 
fs/gfs2/eattr.c, line = 80

GFS2: fsid=rhel5cluster:gfs2lv1.0: telling LM to withdraw

Comment 1 Ben Marzinski 2007-05-08 20:26:26 UTC
The problem with bz #231910 was that a glock was getting demoted from exclusive
while buffers associated with it were still on the incore log.  It seems like
that could account for any number of ugly things happening. I'm closing this as
a dup of 231910. If you can see this even with the fix from that bugzilla,
please reopen it.
