[dm-devel] [ANNOUNCE] multipath-tools-0.3.1


here goes multipath-tools-0.3.1

Early release, to fix a important i386 breakage due to regparm switch in klibc.
Release focuses on undusting kpartx.
ia64 and woody testers, please redo your thing : I may have got it right this

Full ChangeLog for the release :

        * [kpartx] move back to getopt, originaly removed from the
          original partx because of lack of implementation in klibc
        * [kpartx] don't map extended partitions
        * [kpartx] add a -p command flag to allow admin to force a
          delimiting string between disk name and part number. When
          specified always use it, when unspecified use 'p' as a delim
          when last char of disk name is a digit, NUL otherwise.
        * [kpartx] clean up
        * bump klibc to 0.182
        * one step further : use klibc MCONFIG for all klibc specific
          FLAGS definitions, ie massive Makefile.inc cleanup
        * follow the klibc compilation rules by appending its OPTFLAGS
          to multipath-tools' CFLAGS. This corrects the segfaults seen
          on i386 where klibc is built with regparm=3 and tools are not
        * [multipathd] fall back to fork when clone not available
          like in Debian Woody
        * [kpartx] move .start and .size from uint to ulong (Ake)
        * briefly document system-disk-on-multipath in the FAQ file
