Description Stephen Zarkos 2015-01-21 20:55:12 UTC
Hi openSUSE Team,

Please take this fix from the upstream kernel.  This fixes a potential IO freeze issue on Hyper-V and Azure when using multiple disks and RAID devices under heavy load:


storvsc: ring buffer failures may result in I/O freeze
When ring buffer returns an error indicating retry, storvsc may not return a proper error code to SCSI when bounce buffer is not used. This has introduced I/O freeze on RAID running atop storvsc devices. This patch fixes it by always returning a proper error code.

This bug is filed for openSUSE 13.2, but please apply this patch to openSUSE 13.1 as well (or I can file a separate bug if needed).

This patch has already been pulled into SLES 11 and SLES 12 branches by our friends at SUSE, but we want to make sure openSUSE has this as well.
