[linux-lvm] kernel 2.4.x-ac private gendisk_head



Hi all,

In reference to:

http://lists.sistina.com/pipermail/linux-lvm/2001-October/009171.html

I've successfully compiled a kernel, Linux pov 2.4.12-ac3 #10 SMP,
with LVM 1.0.1-rc4 (or CVS [are they the same at the moment?]) and
made the changes to lvm.c and lvm-snap.c outlined in the messages
above.

I am *just about* to create some volumes and test the whole setup
(first with ext2, then ext3).

It is to my understanding, that the modifications to support the
private gendisk_head means that the add_gendisk and del_gendisk
functions are [now] being used from ./drivers/block/genhd.c. Is this
correct? Is everything going to be happy and safe? ;-)

You can find the modified files here:
