DragonFly bugs List (threaded) for 2009-11
Re: panic: assertion: parent != NULL in hammer_cursor_removed_node (v184.108.40.206.gc1543-DEV, X86_64)
: I'm thinking something like this (see below). UNTESTED! I will
: start some tests up today. It could panic instantly :-)
I will have to run some additional tests. Two issues came up but
I'm not sure they are related to the patch or not.
* I did a rm -rf of around 7 million files across a few tens of
thousands of directories. The rm -rf missed two files. The symptom
being it couldn't remove the directory it thought was empty but
which was not empty. ls -lR showed the directory as still
A second rm -rf got rid of the files. I don't know if this is
patch-related or not, it could be a pre-existing bug that I just
found. Directory scans are based on 64-bit hash keys and should
not lose their place regardless of whatever else is going on in
the directory (like file deletions and creations). It should not
have missed the files.
* I did a bulkbuild and had some odd build issues, but I will have
to do a second bulkbuild to try to determine if it is related to
HAMMER or just something going on with the bulkbuild.
It only built around 3000 or so packages and got stuck somewhere
along the way, but the screen output showed it had run through
all 8000+ packages.
