[PATCH 4.9 057/153] dm raid: fix data corruption on reshape request

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

4.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Heinz Mauelshagen <heinzm@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit d36a19541fe8f392778ac137d60f9be8dfdd8f9d upstream.

The lvm2 sequence to manage dm-raid constructor flags that trigger a
rebuild or a reshape is defined as:

1) load table with flags (e.g. rebuild/delta_disks/data_offset)
2) clear out the flags in lvm2 metadata
3) store the lvm2 metadata, reload the table to reset the flags
previously established during the initial load (1) -- in order to
prevent repeatedly requesting a rebuild or a reshape on activation

Currently, loading an inactive table with rebuild/reshape flags
specified will cause dm-raid to rebuild/reshape on resume and thus start
updating the raid metadata (about the progress). When the second table
reload, to reset the flags, occurs the constructor accesses the volatile
progress state kept in the raid superblocks. Because the active mapping
is still processing the rebuild/reshape, that position will be stale by
the time the device is resumed.

In the reshape case, this causes data corruption by processing already
reshaped stripes again. In the rebuild case, it does _not_ cause data
corruption but instead involves superfluous rebuilds.

Fix by keeping the raid set frozen during the first resume and then
allow the rebuild/reshape during the second resume.
