Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH 2.6.20] updated dm-loop patch

Hi Bryn, 

with this patch and also with 0.415 i have the following problem when compiling it with stock 2.6.20 :

  Building modules, stage 2.
  MODPOST 1 modules
WARNING: "invalidate_mapping_pages" [drivers/md/dm-loop.ko] undefined!
make[1]: *** [__modpost] Error 1
make: *** [modules] Error 2

i found , that this was due to missing 


in mm/truncate.c 

i found 

it looks that this didn`t go into 2.6.20 and we need at least 2.6.20-git11 ?
changelog at http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/snapshots/patch-2.6.20-git11.log telling that it had just had been merged on 10th of february:

commit 54bc485522afdac33de5504da2ea8cdcc690674e
Author: Anton Altaparmakov <aia21 cam ac uk>
Date:   Sat Feb 10 01:45:38 2007 -0800

    [PATCH] Export invalidate_mapping_pages() to modules
    It makes no sense to me to export invalidate_inode_pages() and not
    invalidate_mapping_pages() and I actually need invalidate_mapping_pages()
    because of its range specification ability...
    akpm: also remove the export of invalidate_inode_pages() by making it an
    inlined wrapper.

so, we need 2.6.20-git11 for dm-loop or we would need to modify mm/truncate.c manually !?
