Re: [dm-devel] Re: configure MD3000



What sort of bothers me, is that although we specified rdac, it says
hwhandler=0 while on the web there seems to be output examples where
it does say rdac in the multipath output.
Also googling convinced me that some people have
drivers/md/md-multipath-rdac.c or something like that in their kernel,
while my ubuntu kernel and the vanilla git kernel do not have this. I
have the feeling this is an important component of this.
