[dm-devel] [PATCH] DM RAID: allow metadata devices



Patch name: dm-raid-allow-metadata-devices.patch

Add metadata device functionality to dm-raid.c

Add the ability to parse and use metadata devices.  Metadata
devices are not strictly required.  If they are provided, they are used
to store a superblock and bitmap.  Without the metadata area, many features of
RAID are not supported.
