Re: [dm-devel] [Patch 7 of 14] Device Mapper Mirror



I applied this patch(set) but I couldn't create any mirror devices with
"handle_errors" feature because the following code assumes that the
device list is the last to be given.

mirror_ctr()
{
	....
	if (argc != nr_mirrors * 2) {
                ti->error = "Wrong number of mirror arguments";
                dm_destroy_dirty_log(dl);
                return -EINVAL;
        }
}

Changing the condition to "(argc < nr_mirrors * 2)" worked fine. Anyone else
using this patch? Are there any updates to this patch set?

Thanks, Malahal.
