[linux-lvm] dm chunk size is 512?



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I modified lvm2 to display the snapshot chunks used from device-mapper, but 
it's reporting them in 512-byte units (just saw 204800 for a 100mb volume).

My question is, is this supposed to be static (it's from dm proper, not lvm2) 
at that size?  Does lvcreate -s -c <size> change anything?  It would be great 
to force the size for device-mapper snapshot volumes, since dm currently 
thrashes a software raid 5 array during snapshots.

Thanks.
