[lvm-devel] Detect unlikely write failure: persistent device cache, config file



Hi Alasdair,

Here's the patch I mentioned last week.
The only real question is where the new (tiny) close_stream function belongs.
Putting it in config.h is not ideal, but does work, since the two files
that close written-to streams also include config.h.

Would you like a new .h file as I did for lib/misc/last-component.h?
This time, it'd be lib/misc/close-stream.h.

Or maybe a pair of files:
  lib/misc/close-stream.c
  lib/misc/close-stream.h

Here's the patch with the new static inline function in config.h:

-----------------------------------------------
Detect unlikely write failure: persistent device cache, config file
 * lib/config/config.h (close_stream): New static inline function.
 * lib/filters/filter-persistent.c (persistent_filter_dump): Use the
 new function to detect and diagnose unlikely write failure.
 * lib/config/config.c (write_config_file): Likewise.
 * WHATS_NEW: Mention this.
