[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW lib/metadata/metadata.c



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	mbroz sourceware org	2009-12-09 19:29:04

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW 
	lib/metadata   : metadata.c 

Log message:
	Allow manipulation with precommited metadata even when a PV is missing.
	
	The new recovery code first tries to repair LV and then removes failed PV
	from VG. It means that during operation there can be VG with PV missing,
	and vg_read code handles it like not consistent VG.
	
	We already allows returning "inconsistent" commited metadata,
	for mirror repair we need this for precommited too.
	(The suspend call prepares precommited metadata to inactive table on
	other cluster nodes.)
	
	"Inconsistent" here means - correct metadata, just with some metadata areas
	not found (obviously on missing or failed PVs).

 Version 2.02.57 -
 ====================================
+  Allow use precommited metadata when a PV is missing.
   Add memlock information to do_lock_lv debug output.
   Never use distributed lock for LV in non-clustered VG.
   Allow implicit lock conversion in pre/post callbacks on local node.
