Re: [dm-devel] Bug#648367: device-mapper devices such as dm-crypt always have rotational=1; should inherit "rotational" setting from underlying devices

Thanks.

As noted on that bug earlier, it is already fixed in 3.2-rc1
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git;a=commitdiff;h=4693c9668fdcec229825b3763876b4744f9e6d5e

(I thought it is fixed long time ago!)

There is no problem in DM layer with this (dmcrypt does not have own io scheduler)
but perhaps FS can use this flag for some optimization tuning, dunno.
