Summary0015937: rbd/ceph/ext4 lockup issue
DescriptionInstall CentOS 7.6 . Install jewell release of ceph. Create an rbd device of size 256 MB. Format it to ext4 and mount it. Then pound it with writes via fsstress. You will eventually see after a few minutes:

It is stuck hard, not advancing at all.

There's nothing interesting in dmesg other than the above tracebacks.

If you make the size of the rbd device 1 GB or greater, the problem seems to go away. At least we haven't seen it yet.

I tried using the older CentOS 7 kernels and they all exhibited the same problem, with a small difference. The 7.0 and 7.1 kernels only had fsstress locked up without the jbd2 kernel thread also locking up. I tried using the upstream 4.9 kernel which I built myself on the CentOS 7.6 platform using the config file from 7.6. It worked fine, no lockups.

Another point of interest. I instead made an xfs filesystem on /dev/rbd0 and it exhibited no problems.

I turned on dynamic debug for both modules rbd and libceph, and saw nothing interesting in the rather voluminous set of logs. I'm no expert in this software however.

Moving ceph jewell ahead from 10.2.6 to 10.2.11 made no difference.
Steps To ReproduceThe problem appears on real hardware, qemu, and virtualbox.

I create a qemu session with two qcow disks (160 GB and 10 GB) and at least one network adaptor bridged through to the internet.

Lockups usually occur somewhere around iteration 400, maybe earlier if you're lucky. The longest I personally saw it go was 750.
