another problem with latest xfs
Is this with the 2.6.27-based ptools/cvs tree or with the 2.6.28 based
git tree? It does looks more like a VM issue than a XFS issue to me.
It's with the 2.6.27-rc8 based ptools tree. Prior to checking
in these patches:
Can't lock inodes in radix tree preload region
stop using xfs_itobp in xfs_bulkstat
free partially initialized inodes using destroy_inode
I was able to stress a system for about 4 hours before it ran out
of memory. Now I hit the deadlock within a few minutes. I need
to roll back to find which patch changed the behaviour.
