Re: [dm-devel] dmsetup status not clear

I can't comment on the naming - but in regards to the write cache - that is
the information the kernel gets from the device using SCSI commands (to be
exact it MODE_SENSE). The device has it disabled. You can fiddle with MODE_SELECT
command if you want to enable it - but keep in mind that when you have a RAID
it is advised to turn cache off. Unless your computer has a UPS connected so that 
you can flush the data immediately and turn off caching.

That is OK.

cat /proc/dmstatus should give you some details.

That is just the static mapping it has setup. Where it says that disks 8:0 and 8:16
are part of the of your RAID. Do a 'ls /dev/ | grep 8' and you will see what 
the 8:0, and 8:16 correspond to.
