[dm-devel] Re: [PATCH 1/3] sysfs representation of stacked devices (dm/md common)



Hi Alasdair,

Thank you for the comments.

Make sure you test this properly under low memory situations.

OK.

dm_swap_table() mustn't block waiting for memory to become
free (except in a controlled way e.g. with a mempool, but
it would need more than that here).

Here, dm_swap_table() leads to kmalloc() getting called
in sysfs_add_link().

I moved the sysfs_add_link() to the last part of dm_resume().
Directory creation/deletion are also moved in the alloc_dev/
free_dev function as kobject_register/unregister may allocate
memory.
I didn't change the part of removing symlink as it doesn't
allocate memory.

Do you think this is an acceptable approach?
