Altough is clear that the bug itself is a kernel bug it's also
clear that glusterfs is triggering that bug. The same system under
the same load but using nfs instead of gluster does not have this
problem. This problem also does not happen copying lots of data
using scp. Also, i have never seen such this hangs in more than
10 years using unix boxes. But the more strange thing is that this
is a bug that can make glusterfs totally unusable and the developers
seem to don't worry even in finding what is exactly causing that

To make an analogy, supose that users that have a specific brand of
tires in his car complain to the manufacturer about that tires
breaking too fast where other tires has no problem and the manufacturer
says that this is due to the road deffects and does nothing to improve
the tires. It's clear what will happen to this manufacturer, right ?

Best regards ...
