:(, not again please, i am a noname lvm user and i really found this kind
of misunderstanding really frustating.

but there is a time when "clearing the air" is needed and i am pretty sure
that you all (developers) love much to code than to argue.

please, take my words as they come, from a linux user and developer
wannabe that loves the way opensource is getting into the world.

sure we all hope it is, but if you take a look to the currently released
linus kernel (2.4.3 and for sure the olders), it is obvious than a broken
lvm was in place there.

and for sure taking the beta7 userland tools with that module is going to
piss anyone.

i'll bet they (sistina) are working on that as they explained before, BTW
i just found it on 2.4.4-pre6

+ *    05/04/2001 - lvm_map bugs: don't use b_blocknr/b_dev in lvm_map, it
+ *                destroys stacking devices. call b_end_io on failed maps.
+ *                (Jens Axboe)

and i am pretty sure that there are more to come (Alan, Heinz, your turn
with the ball)
