This is my first attempt to report a stale mount problem. If this is
not the relevant mail list, please let me know. I suspect that my
problem is xfs related, thus I select this mailing list.
I have a system that recently upgraded it's kernel to 184.108.40.206. The
system's previous kernel was 2.6.18.-8.el5. With the previous kernel, I
have no problem with executing the following commands when the system is
in operation. Note that the /mnt/mountpoint is mounted on a XFS file
mount -o rw,remount /mnt/mountpoint
mount -o ro,remount /mnt/mountpoint
With kernel 220.127.116.11, however, the mount command may be hang when
changing from rw to ro. When this happen, system is very sluggish.
Even the "shutdown -r now" command is not taken. The only way to get
out of this hang is by manually pressing the power button
Your sugguestion is greatly appreciated.
