[dm-devel] [ANNOUNCE] multipath-tools-0.3.5



Hello,

here goes multipath-tools-0.3.5

As expected, 0.3.4 was still cutting at the edges, so this is a bugfix oriented
release. Thanks for the feedback so far.

Note the changes to udev config files : they need updating
Note the unproven 2.6.10-rc1+ new dependency for SG_IO ioctl on bdevs.

Full ChangeLog for the release :

	* [multipathd] fix broken test for path going up or shaky
	  that kept executing multipath when it shouldn't
	* change multipath.dev to exit early when udev' DEVNAME is
	  a devmap (/dev/dm-*). This avoids a recursion case when
	  the kernel devmapper keeps removing a map after multipath
	  configures it.
	* change multipath.rules to follow the new -D synthax
	* [multipath] "-D major minor" synthax changed to
	  "-D major:minor" to match the sysfs attribute value.
	  This change removes a few translations in multipath and
	  multipathd.
	* [multipath] fix segfault in test if conf->dev is a devmap
	  (the one forwarded by MikeAnd)
	* SG_IO ioctl seem to work in lk 2.6.10+, so remove all sg
	  device knowledge and advertise (here) the new dependency.
	* [multipath] remove unused do_tur()
	* [multipath] fix sort_pg_by_summed_prio(), and don't add up
	  failed path priority
