Description Peter Kerwien 2009-01-11 12:20:11 UTC
Latest working kernel version: N/A
Earliest failing kernel version: 2.6.29-rc1
Distribution: Gentoo Linux amd64
Hardware Environment: 
Software Environment: e2fsprogs-1.41.3
Problem Description: During a resize of an ext4 formated lvm2 volume, a NULL pointer was derefrenced.

When I executed this command on a mounted LVM2 volume:

# resize2fs /dev/vg1/ftp

The following error happened:

Steps to reproduce: Unknown. I have resized ext4 volumes a couple of time. This error has only happened once so far.
Comment 1 Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo 2009-01-23 13:02:44 UTC
Have you enabled flex_bg recently? Have you kept the log? Any message indicating an error like this one?

Jan 23 14:20:42 vespa kernel: [  463.027499] EXT4-fs error (device dm-11): ext4_get_group_desc: block_group >= groups_count - block_group = 11, groups_count = 11

I've hit this bug and fixed it. The patch was sent to linux-ext4 and is available at http://holoscopio.com/patches/0001-ext4-fix-oops-when-online-resizing-a-filesystem-wit.patch. Could you, please, test it?

Regards,
Cascardo.
Comment 2 Peter Kerwien 2009-01-23 14:00:37 UTC
flex_bg is default on when creating ext4 on my Gentoo system.

Yeap, I found this in my log:
...

Jan 11 20:56:41 kerwien kernel: EXT4-fs error (device dm-0): ext4_get_group_desc: block_group >= groups_count -

Jan 11 20:56:41 kerwien kernel: PGD 1a873067 PUD 3eded067 PMD 0 
...

I can try the patch and see if I can reproduce the problem again or not.
Comment 3 Peter Kerwien 2009-02-03 10:49:14 UTC
I applied the patch to 2.6.29-rc1 and have resized an ext4 volume, both as logical with lvm2 and a normal disk partition. I have experimented with both online and offline resize to a larger size and offline resize to a smaller size. I have done this approx. 15-20 times and so far no more oops.
Comment 4 Theodore Tso 2009-02-03 11:18:51 UTC
This patch has been merged into the Linux mainline and should be in 2.6.29-rc4 (and newer) releases.
