pvmove hangs on 2T devices
This document (7016272) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
When trying to move PEs from one 2T (or greater) multipathed device to another one that was just added to the volume group in a clustered environment will result in a hang with the following messages: [ 6778.164097] device-mapper: dm-log-userspace: [autyCORE] Request timed out: [5/586] - retrying Feb 3 08:48:17 hostname cmirrord: Sync checkpoint section create retry
Devices less than 2Tb work correctly.
Modify the region_size of /etc/lvm/lvm.conf: raid_region_size = 512 ==> raid_region_size = 2048
In a clustered environment, `pvmove` will create a temporary mirrored LV to sync data. Bitmap size is 256KB(due to message length limited at 1M), region_size(data region size of 1 bit in bitmap) is 512KB by default. So if we use default region_size the volume size is limited at: 512KB * 256KB*8 = 1TB
