[dm-devel] [ANNOUNCE] multipath-tools-0.3.0


here goes multipath-tools-0.3.0

Faster release cycle.
Big things for some people out there.
Upgrade will need you to manualy remove your /etc/udev/rules.d/multipath.rules
and kill your devmap_name rule in udev.rules (we use a separate rules.d file

In short :

* easy multipath-aware initrds on Debian SID
	* fully fonctionnal with direct-attached SCSI disks (single-path)

Full ChangeLog for the release :

        * first cut at making scripts to create multipath-aware initrds
	  those scripts are tested on Debian SID, and must be copied into
	  /etc/mkinitrd/scripts. it works here.
	* [multipath] verify presence of the /sys/block/... node before
	  reading sysfs attributes. Avoids libsysfs and scsi_id stderr
	* [multipath] move down the stderr close (Ake Sandgren at umu.se)
	* [multipath] don't care about 0-sized mp (Ake Sandgren at umu.se)
	* [multipath] bump mp size field to ulong (Ake Sandgren at umu.se)
	* [multipath] replace quiet/verbose flags by a verbosity one.
	  introduce a new verbosity level : 1 == print only devmap names
	  thus we can feed kpartx with that output
	* [multipath] update man page to reflect the hotplug.d -> dev.d
	  transition and replace the obsolete group_by_tur policy by the
	  forgotten group_by_prio
	* [multipath] provide a /etc/udev/rules.d/multipath.rules for
	  multipath devices naming. Cleaner than the previously suggested
	  rule addition in the main udev.rules
	* [multipath] move out of hotplug.d to dev.d : kill synchronisation
	  problems between device node creation and multipath execution.
	  Incidentally the unfriendly $DEVPATH param become a friendly
	  $DEVNAME (simply /dev/sdb)
	* [multipath] rework the iopolicies name-to-id & id-to-name
	  translations. kills the last compilation warning here too
	* [kpartx] kill last compilation warnings
	* bump klibc to 0.181
	* add the debian/ packaging dir (make deb)
	* prototype __clone & __clone2 (kills compilation warning)
