race condition in dep8 test

Bug Description


 * As can be seen in dep8 tests on published results [1], there seems to be a race condition on tear down of at least one of the growpart tests. We seem to see it most on ppc64el [2]. I'm attaching cloud-utils-ppc64el-0.31-0ubuntu1.log that came from [3].

[Test Case]

* It seems that the test that fails (at least in the 2 cases I saw) is 'growpart-loop'.

The relevant output in the log is this:

    unmount /tmp/test-growpart.VyOylU/mp
    clearing parts [1] from /dev/loop0
    delpart /dev/loop0 1
    delpart: failed to remove partition: Device or resource busy
    FAIL: ./test/test-growpart failed. pt_type=dos resizer=sfdisk

I've copied the relevant portion of the log to attached 'short.log'.

[Regression Potential]

* Minor potential as the only changes being added are "udevadm settle". This will likely add a bit of more time to execution but won't change the logic of what was already being done (just serialize udev events).

Hello Scott, or anyone else affected,

Accepted cloud-utils into disco-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cloud-utils/0.31-0ubuntu1.1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-disco to verification-done-disco. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-disco. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

Changed in cloud-utils (Ubuntu Disco):
status: In Progress → Fix Committed
