+ * This file defines the fields (columns) for the reporting commands
+ * (pvs/vgs/lvs).
+ */
+/*
+ * The 'FIELD' macro arguments are defined as follows:
+ * 1. report_type.  An enum value that selects a specific
+ * struct dm_report_object_type in the _report_types array.  The value is
+ * used to select the containing base object address (see *obj_get*
+ * functions) for any data values of any field in the report.
+ * 2. Containing struct.  The structure that either contains the field data
+ * as a member or should be used to obtain the field data.  The containing
+ * struct should match the base object of the report_type.
+ * 3. Field type.  This must be either 'STR' or 'NUM'.
+ * 4. Report heading.  This is the field heading that is displayed by the
+ * reporting commands.
+ * 5. Data value pointer.  This argument is is always a member of the
+ * containing struct.  In some cases, the member points to the data value
+ * of the field (for example, lv_uuid - see _uuid_disp()).  In other cases
+ * it is pointer that may be used to derive the data value (for example,
+ * seg_count - see _lvsegcount_disp()).  In the FIELD macro definition,
+ * this is used in an offset calculation to derive the offset to the
+ * data value from the containing struct base address.
+ * 6. Minimum display width.  This is the minimum width used to display
+ * the field value.
+ * 7. Display function identifier.  Used to derive the full name of the
+ * function that displays this field.  Derivation is done by appending '_'
+ * then prepending this argument to '_disp'.  For example, if this argument
+ * is 'uuid', the display function is _uuid_disp().  Adding a new field may
+ * require defining a new display function (for example _myfieldname_disp()),
+ * or re-use of an existing one (for example, _uint32_disp()).
+ * 8. Unique format identifier / field id.  This name must be unique and is
+ * used to select fields via '-o' in the reporting commands (pvs/vgs/lvs).
+ * The string used to specify the field - the 'id' member of
+ * struct dm_report_field_type.
+ * 9. Description of field.  This is a brief (ideally <= 52 chars) description
+ * of the field used in the reporting commands.
