[lvm-devel] LVM2 lib/cache/lvmcache.c lib/datastruct/str_l ...



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	wysochanski sourceware org	2009-07-27 11:00:21

Modified files:
	lib/cache      : lvmcache.c 
	lib/datastruct : str_list.c 
	liblvm         : lvm.h lvm_vg.c 

Log message:
	Update error return and comments for lvm_list_vg_names/uuids.
	
	The two liblvm functions that return a list of vgnames and vguuids use
	cmd->mem to allocate the list.  Make it clear to the caller that this
	memory will be freed when the LVM handle is freed.
	
	Clean up and clarify the return value of the functions.  In the
	case of a memory allocation error, add a couple log_errnos to the internal
	code, and make it clear that memory allocation returns a NULL pointer.
	If there are no VGs in the system, the list returned is an empty list.
	
	Make a note of the fact that currently we return hidden VG names, how
	these can be detected (always start with "#"), and that they should
	not be used.
