Ceph - QEMU crash when Ceph pool pg_num is changed

Solution Unverified - Updated -


When changing pg_num on a Ceph pool, QEMU VMs using a PG that is modified by the pg_num change operation die a horrible death:

osd/osd_types.cc: In function 'bool pg_t::is_split(unsigned int, unsigned int, 
std::set<pg_t>*) const' thread 7fd5e7fff700 time 2015-08-20 15:38:42.272380

I found a Ceph bug (http://tracker.ceph.com/issues/10399) that is the exact issue and it looks like a fix was just merged to master. This ticket is to express our interest in seeing this quickly backported to Hammer.
