[dm-devel] FW: Re: [PATCH] another (fixed) dm cookie support



----- Forwarded message from Milan Broz <mbroz redhat com> -----

Date: Wed, 15 Apr 2009 18:19:44 +0200
From: Milan Broz <mbroz redhat com>
Subject: Re: [PATCH] another (fixed) dm cookie support

Add support for passing a 32 bit "cookie" into the kernel with the
DM_SUSPEND, DM_DEV_RENAME and DM_DEV_REMOVE ioctls.  The (unsigned)
value of this cookie is returned to userspace alongside the uevents
issued by these ioctls in the variable DM_COOKIE.

This means the userspace process issuing these ioctls can be notified
by udev after udev has completed any actions triggered.

To minimise the interface extension, we pass the cookie into the
kernel in the event_nr field which is otherwise unused when calling
these ioctls.  Incrementing the version number allows userspace to
determine in advance whether or not the kernel supports the cookie.
If the kernel does support this but userspace does not, there should
be no impact as the new variable will just get ignored.
