When I try to discard the whole thin lv using blkdiscard, an OOM occurs
and I lost my ssh connection.
TTY login also fails to start, although kernel and network still looks
alive but no way to login into the system.
Have to reboot.
Not sure if this is a bug in blkdiscard or lvm.

1. Make a thin pool with 30G space.
2. Create 1T thin lv from the thin pool created in 1.
3. Do some operation to occupy some space in thin lv
4. Exec blkdiscard on the thin lv

[How to discard thin lv]
BTW, what's the proper method to discard all allocated space for a thin lv?
Lvremove and lvcreate?!
