[dm-devel] Re: device mapper integrated loops - and one more year !

Hello !

after desparately seeking for a solution to have more than 256 loop devices (for a huge cd-rom server), i have recently come across dm-loop, which looks very promising (to replace loop.c)

can i have more than 256 devices which this?

our cd-rom server is going to have more than 256 iso-images soon and i need to upgrade to a more recent OS, anyway, so this won`t be a problem that dm-loop is so brand new.

but - any timeline for dm-loop mainline inclusion ?

should i wait for 2.6.19 or 2.6.20 ?

is it already useable with less recent kernels, i.e. can i download dm-loop patch and recent dmsetup tool and use with older kernel ?

i really would like to give it a try - no problem if there are still bugs inside, because i`d happily test and report if there are bugs left.
