Re: [Cluster-devel] [PATCH 2/4] mkfs.gfs2: Align resource groups to RAID stripes

| Good question. I had assumed that we don't have a rule like that as the
| rindex specifies the rg sizes. My next planned mkfs change is to allow

Some more thoughts to add to this discussion:

First, since we're now trying to align our rgrps to raid stripes, maybe
the rules no longer make sense.

Second, we probably want to change gfs2_grow to ensure that new rgrps
are also placed on the same stripe boundaries. If we enforce the uniform
rgrp rule, this would probably happen automatically. If we don't, I bet
gfs2_grow would need to change.
