Default Multisnapshot tests

Hello!

I continued tests of lvm-multisnapshots and possible found a bug.
Here is the sequence of my actions:

1. Built vanilla kernel 2.6.33.1 with patches from
http://people.redhat.com/mpatocka/patches/kernel/new-snapshots/r16/
applied. The next lines were added to the config:
CONFIG_DM_MULTISNAPSHOT=m
CONFIG_DM_MULTISNAPSHOT_MIKULAS=m
CONFIG_DM_MULTISNAPSHOT_DANIEL=m
Installed the new kernel on Debian Lenny and rebooted.


2. Origin and snapshot volumes were created on a 4-terabyte disk
with RAID 0.
The command was used:

# mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=0 --raid-devices=4 /dev/sdb
/dev/sdc /dev/sdd /dev/sde


3. The next commands were used to set up multisnapshots:
# modprobe dm-store-mikulas

# modprobe dm-multisnapshot

# pvcreate /dev/md0
Physical volume "/dev/md0" successfully created

# vgcreate vg1 /dev/md0
Volume group "vg1" successfully created

# lvcreate --size=1T --name=lv1 vg1
Logical volume "lv1" created

# lvcreate --size=1T --name=lv2 vg1
Logical volume "lv2" created

# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mapper/vg1-lv2 bs=4096 count=1024
1024+0 records in
1024+0 records out
4194304 bytes (4,2 MB) copied, 0,00279046 s, 1,5 GB/s

# echo 0 `blockdev --getsz /dev/mapper/vg1-lv1` multisnapshot
/dev/mapper/vg1-lv1 /dev/mapper/vg1-lv2 32 0 mikulas 0| dmsetup create ms

# dmsetup status /dev/mapper/ms
0 2147483648 multisnapshot 5 -1 - 4194304 128 128 0


How we can see the multisnapshot was created with the error -1 (EPERM)

Important: creation of volumes of lesser size, 300 Mb each for
instance, caused no errors.


Also I'd like to ask: could anyone say where it is possible to find
the information and examples of using "lvm" tool for driving
multisnapshots?
