[lvm-devel] LVM2 doc/example.conf man/lvm.conf.5

CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	wysochanski sourceware org	2008-02-04 20:26:14

Modified files:
	doc            : example.conf 
	man            : lvm.conf.5 

Log message:
	Fix default preferred_names filter to use /dev/mapper/mpath devices.
	If these devices exist, we should be using them for multipath rather than any
	underlying device names.
