[dm-devel] 2.6.5-udm4



No DM changes or fixes. Just "composting" (as Joe puts it) of -udm3.
- Update to 2.6.5-mm3.
- Combine patches 9 and 29, since they address the same problem.
- Combine patch 27 with the main mirror target patch (24).

If no one has any objections, I'll forward patches 2-10 to akpm on Monday. 
Before he left, Joe mentioned wanting to submit these. Since they're all 
"bug-fixes", I see no reason to wait on sending them.

Revision 1:
  -mm3

Revision 2:
  Fix 64/32 bit ioctl problems.

Revision 3:
  Check the uptodate flag in sub-bios to see if there was an error.
  [Mike Christie]

Revision 4:
  Handle interrupts within suspend.

Revision 5:
  dm.c: Use wake_up() rather than wake_up_interruptible() with the
  eventq.

Revision 6:
  Log an error if the target has unknown target type, or zero length.

Revision 7:
  Correctly align the dm_target_spec structures during retrieve_status().
  
  This patch applies to both 2.4 and 2.6 kernels.

Revision 8:
  Clarify the comment regarding the "next" field in struct dm_target_spec. The
  "next" field has different behavior if you're performing a DM_TABLE_STATUS
  command than it does if you're performing a DM_TABLE_LOAD command.
  
  See populate_table() and retrieve_status() in drivers/md/dm-ioctl.c for more
  details on how this field is used.

Revision 9:
  dm-ioctl.c::retrieve_status(): Prevent overrunning the ioctl buffer by 
  making sure we don't call the target status routine with a buffer size limit
  of zero.
  [Kevin Corry, Alasdair Kergon]

Revision 10:
  Striped: Use an EMIT macro in the status function.

Revision 11:
  Documentation for the linear target.  The last 2 scripts still need
  testing.

Revision 12:
  VFS lock patch [Chris Mason]

Revision 13:
  Fix XFS to work with the new VFS-lock patch.

Revision 14:
  Lock the filesystem while a device is suspended.
  [Kevin Corry, Joe Thornber]

Revision 15:
  Multipath target

Revision 16:
  Multipath: move the path failure decision to the path
  selector. Some ps's may want to select paths that have a couple
  failures over one that has N failures. If a ps has to track this info
  there didn't seem to be a compelling reason to also do it in
  dm-mpath.c. Well code duplication and sharing is a good reason to do
  it in dm-mpath. It would be nice if I could just add an init function
  to any ps and leach off other people's work :) but is that too modular?
  
  Additionally, if a ps fails to activate a path or cannot use it
  during initialization it may want to fail it.  [Mike Christie]

Revision 17:
  Multipath: exports the register and unregister ps functions.
  [Mike Christie]

Revision 18:
  Multipath: makes priority group / path-selector initialization
  possible. Remapping failed bios from end_io was not nice becuase you
  couldn't choose a path until you knew a group was activated and what
  paths in that group were still functional.  Plus, incoming IO needed
  to be mapped while failures were coming in.
  
  I guess you could just make map_io sleep or do some internal queueing.
  
  I choose the former, so I had to move the remap map_io call to
  dispatch_failed_ios and add a get_mapinfo accessor function.
  
  I think queueing incoming io while you finish the failed may be better,
  but targets calling dm's queueing mechanism didn't seem right, and
  reimplementing it didn't either. Well, I do not know if it is better
  or not. While paths are failing performance is going to take a hit
  so io ordering may only be a problem if you are concerned with
  journaling or barrier type stuff (but as we end up sending IO down
  multiple queues we cannot gaurantee ordering on the normal IO code
  path anyways).  [Mike Christie]

Revision 19:
  Multipath: adds another accessor so path-selectors can access a path's
  bdev. This is necessary for devices which need to send commands down
  to the device. (see rdac-test-support.patch)  [Mike Christie]

Revision 20:
  Multipath: dispatch_failed_ios can sleep. It should not
  disrupt other users of the default work queue. Under heavy load
  or group/ps initializations on a single processor machine, this
  conflict becomes painful.  [Mike Christie]

Revision 21:
  Multipath: attached patch initializes current_count correctly.
  [Mike Christie]

Revision 22:
  dm-io

Revision 23:
  kcopyd

Revision 24:
  snapshot target.

Revision 25:
  mirror target.

Revision 26:
  Flakey target

Revision 27:
  dm-zero
