Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH] dm ioctl: retrieve status from inactive table



Latest version.  The userspace support is now in dmsetup in CVS.

Please could some people who are familiar with the ioctls and dmsetup 
try these out?

The --inactive flag is meant to work with all dmsetup cmds that return
any table information, and all table information should be affected
(including number of targets).

(Patch is also here: 
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/agk/patches/2.6/editing/dm-ioctl-retrieve-status-from-inactive-table.patch
and should apply on top of current linux-next.)

Alasdair



Add the flag DM_QUERY_INACTIVE_TABLE_FLAG to the ioctls to return
infomation about the loaded-but-not-yet-active table instead of the live
table.  Prior to this patch it was impossible to obtain this information
until the device had been 'resumed'.

Userspace dmsetup and libdevmapper support the flag as of version 1.02.40.
e.g. dmsetup info --inactive vg1-lv1
