parentmd: prevent duplicates in bind_rdev_to_array (diff)
md: support blocking writes to an array on device failure
Allows a userspace metadata handler to take action upon detecting a device failure. Based on an original patch by Neil Brown. Changes: -added blocked_wait waitqueue to rdev -don't qualify Blocked with Faulty always let userspace block writes -added md_wait_for_blocked_rdev to wait for the block device to be clear, if userspace misses the notification another one is sent every 5 seconds -set MD_RECOVERY_NEEDED after clearing "blocked" -kill DoBlock flag, just test mddev->external Signed-off-by: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Neil Brown <neilb@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
