Device mapper bug not fixed as claimed by

I have a problem with the device-mapper when shutting down my server. The issue is just as describe in

The knowledge base article claims that the issue is caused by a call to vgchange -a n which is supposedly fixed in device-mapper-1.02.77-0.15.14.

I have device-mapper-1.02.77-0.15.14 installed and I still see the offending call to vgchange.

The most recent changelog entry for device-mapper-1.02.77-0.15.14 is

  • Do not output error message inside retry loops to avoid noisy error
    message being output inside retry loops in case of remove failure
    because device busy. (bsc#960344)
    add: libdm-iface-not-output-error-message-inside-retry-loop.patch

So where is the actual fix to the issue?


do you still see the error message? Because from what I can tell, all that’s suppressed is the extra noise. The call to vgchange is still needed.
