[DRBD-user] "syncer" crash when doing full resync

I am seeing a drbdd oops almost exact in nature to the one below, certainly looks like memory corruption.  It is happening in the same spot (drbd_end_req()).


Because this is happening somewhat consistently within the drbd subsystem and no where else, I wonder if the corruption is coming from within drbd?  Was this issue ever resolved?


I am using drbd version 0.6.12, has anyone seen this problem with newer versions of drbd?

After finding time to analyze this problem it is clear that the 
peer sent an invalid response-cookie, which caused this node to crash.
We understand what happened there:
 -> receive_block_ack
     -> drbd_end_req
         -> struct Drbd_Conf* mdev = drbd_conf + MINOR(req->bh->b_rdev);
The crash happens while dereferencing req->bh
The register holding req (%esi) has 0xffffffff .
This req comes from the peer, it got it with the request to write a block.
Either your peer is corrupting its memory (more probabely), or 
the node, on which the OOPS happened is corrupting its memory (less
Please go and get new hardware.
[In case memtest86 does not find anything, it could be that the 
 IO operation to disk does the memory corruption...]
