This patch fixes hard-coded value for the size of a chunk that includes

Any more places too?  (E.g. persistent_commit_merge)

Alasdair

I think the expression in persistent_commit_merge should be changed to:
ps->next_free = area_location(ps, ps->current_area) +
                 ps->current_committed + 1;

It is numerically the same, but will avoid trouble if
NUM_SNAPSHOT_HDR_CHUNKS is increased.

Mikulas



agree,

a single chunk is large enough to contain 16byte disk header
which does not seem necessary to increase NUM_SNAPSHOT_HDR_CHUNKS in the future
(unless whole structure get totally changed),
but it should also get fixed to avoid trouble.

I merged it to the patch with your names signed off.

Thanks,
Tomohiro Kusumi
