[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW_DM udev/10-dm.rules.in



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	prajnoha sourceware org	2009-12-07 12:03:47

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW_DM 
	udev           : 10-dm.rules.in 

Log message:
	Disable udev rules on change event with DISK_RO=1.
	
	There's a new change udev event generated since kernel 2.6.32 that
	notifies userspace about a change in read-only attribute for block
	devices (with DISK_RO=1 environment variable set).
	
	We need to detect this and disable the rule application so the
	meaning of this change event is not interchanged with the regular
	change event used while resuming/renaming DM devices.
	
	If there's anybody awaiting this notification in foreign rules,
	he can still check for this env var and do the appropriate actions
	separately.
