Re: [dm-devel] mirrored device with thousand of mappingtableentries



According to your suggestion I need to map the non contiguous extents
into linear devices and mirror them.

But, what if I am required to preserve the original extent's offset?
Since I need to mirror an existing device with user data already on
it...

Nobody considered having a huge number of tiny mirrors reasonable or
necessary
so no attempt has been made to optimise that situation.
