[lvm-devel] [PATCH v4 0/5] LVM2 topology support



LVM2 topology support to properly align the PV's pe_start using the
associated 'alignment_offset' exposed in sysfs.

Provides manual configuration with pvcreate --dataalignmentoffset and
auto config control via 'devices/data_alignment_offset_detection' in
lvm.conf.

Documentation was added to the lvm.conf and pvcreate man pages.

Testing with pvcreate + vgextend + vgreduce + vgextend + vgreduce ...
proved to maintain the pe_start from the initial pvcreate.

v2 changes:
Also added another method for auto detection of --dataalignment using
the topology information that is exposed in sysfs.  Controlled via
'devices/data_alignment_detection' in lvm2.conf.

v3 changes:
Fixed 'devices/data_alignment_detection' patch (5/5) to retrieve the
minimum_io_size and optimal_io_size for partitions from the parent
device's 'queue/'.  Both attributes are found in 'queue/'

v4 changes:
Added the md_chunk_alignment patch (1/1) to the patch series.
Simplified the _mda_setupi() change in --dataalignmentoffset patch (3/5).
Improved the documentation and comments in all patches. 

Mike Snitzer (5):
  Update 'md_chunk_alignment' to use stripe-width to align PV data
  cmdline: support for bytes and sectors
  Add --dataalignmentoffset to pvcreate to pad aligned data area
  Add devices/data_alignment_offset_detection to lvm.conf.
  Add devices/data_alignment_detection to lvm.conf.
