Yes. It should timeout about 15 secs after you see

You might be hitting a bug where the network layer gets stuck trying to
send data. I attached a patch that should fix the problem.

It looks like we have two bugs.

1. We can get stuck in the network code.
2. There is a race where the session->state can get reset due to the
xmit thread throwing an error after we have set the session->state but
before we have set the stop_stage.

The attached patch for RHEL 5.5 should fix them all.


Will this patch be in the next RHEL 5.5 beta kernel? Easier to test if there's
no need to build custom kernel :)

I am not sure if it will be in the next 5.5 beta. It should be in 5.5 though. Do you have a bugzilla account? I made this bugzilla
You can add yourself to it and when the patch is merged you will get a notification and a link to a test kernel.

If you do not have a bugzilla account, just let me know and I will ping you when it is available in a test kernel.
