[dm-devel] [ANNOUNCE] multipath-tools-0.1.5



Here goes 0.1.5, featuring :

        * kpartx to manage the nested bdevs such as /dev/cciss/c0d0.
          parts are named sysfs style : cciss!c0d0p*
        * kpartx loop support
        * kpartx do DM updates if part maps already present
        * merge kpartx for partitioned multipath support
        * add get_null_uid to getuid methods. assign it the "0" index
          devices with this getuid are thus ignored by multipath.
          warning : change /etc/multipath.conf (get_evpd_wwid == 1)
        * mv all_scsi_ids out of the 2.6 code path, into the 2.4 one
        * unlink runfile on malloc exit path
        * update multipath manpage (MikeC)

As one can see, the big thing is the kpartx merging.
I don't really know if multipath-tools is the right place for this, because its scope of action is quite large ... but I know I need it for partitioned multipaths, so.


kpartx is know to successfuly map devmaps upon partioned :

	* sd & hd
	* devmaps (stacking) : multipath for example
	* cciss raid devs (with sysfs naming)
	* files (auto set_loop, lomount plagiarism)
	* loops (naturaly)

Not tested but certainly working : MD, nbd, ...

As usual, untar into udev-02?/extras/ to compile.
