[Drbd-dev] I/O can hang on primary synctarget after an io error.

We are seeing an issue where I/O to a volume that received an I/O error
during re-sync as the sync target hangs. Looking at the logs it seems
that what's going on is that we are skipping a dec_local(). My theory
is that after_state_ch() is blocked forever waiting for local_cnt to be
0 as we are becoming Diskless. So the worker will not do any work,
hence the hang I/O. Here is the relevant logs:
Feb 13 03:48:55 node0 kernel: drbd5: Began resync as SyncTarget (will
sync 1048508 KB [262127 bits set]).
Feb 13 03:48:55 node0 kernel: drbd5: Writing meta data super block now.

Feb 13 03:48:55 node0 kernel: drbd5: ***Simulating Resync write failure

Feb 13 03:48:56 node0 kernel: drbd5: Can not write resync data to local

Notice the last line of the log. Our test environment must have tried
to do an "attach" so since local_cnt is not 0 we never freed the "bc".
But from the "Can not write resync data to local disk." we can go to
drbd_endio_write_sec() and there we see a suspicious :
If(bio->bi_size) return 1;
We are supposed to do the dec_local at the end of drbd_endio_write
sec(). I am guessing that's where the problem is. But I do not know why
bi_size would be greater then 0. Is the fix simply to dec_local while
BTW, the code below inserts the fault in question but won't necessarily
make the hang happens:
echo inserting fault....
echo 0x4 >/sys/module/drbd/parameters/enable_faults
echo 0x20 >/sys/module/drbd/parameters/fault_devs
echo 5 > /sys/module/drbd/parameters/fault_rate
echo starting resync
drbdadm -c /etc/drbd.conf.avance invalidate drbd5.vol
