Re: [linux-lvm] bcache and dm targets (specifically lvm)



I found the bug. Ugh...

pvcreate refuses to use a device it doesn't recognize - look at the
lvm2 source, lib/filters/filter.c

I don't know why and I don't think I want to know. I imagine it'd work
if you commented out the offending check (line 143 in my version).

Maybe one of them can explain what's going on.
