Re: [linux-lvm] How does LVM-Cache work?



I see reference of another dm-cache from ming zhao as far back as
2007.  Found a link here https://github.com/mingzhao/dm-cache.  Does
anybody know the history behind this stuff?  I would have expected one
of these solutions to be pushed upstream by now considering how much
interest is around tiered storage..
