[linux-lvm] [PATCH LVM2] add --regionsize option to lvconvert



Hi,

For mirrored LV, you can set region size at creation.
However, you can't if you convert linear LV to mirrored LV.

Implementation is already there but the parser isn't set to
accept the parameter.
Attached patch enables it.

Region size conversion of existing mirror isn't implemented yet
and lvconvert rejects such request.
