As long as David is ok with it.. i was explicitly told that those

David can we make a final call on those libs?

Yes, libdlmcontrol is meant to be usd by ocfs2_controld.  I still think it
needs to be kept "private", or "internal" in some way to prevent someone
from trying to use it.

This is tricky.. the only half clean way i can think of is to use a non standard library path:


without adding it to the standard LD_PATH.

all the cluster bits can just keep linking statically. "Advanced users" like ocfs2 can either add that to the LD_PATH and link dynamically or build statically (whatever they prefer).

Clearly the include file will also have to go outside standard paths..

It's not clean.. i am not very happy to go this route, but i think it's the only one to protect the library as "private".

I welcome better suggestions tho...


PS shipping only static library is not an option.

I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse.
