[lvm-devel] [ANNOUNCE] shared snapshots for userspace


I released userspace support for shared snapshots. It can be downloaded 

It allows to create, delete, activate, deactivate the shared snapshots. It 
supports resize too but the kernel doesn't (so you can resize the store 
but it has no effect).

Use --sharedstore mikulas or --sharedstore fujita-daniel parameter to 
specify the shared store type, otherwise the syntax is the same as for 
nonshared snasphots.

It creates an lvm volume with suffix -shared that represents the shared 
volume. It can never be activated (the origin is activated instead). 
Individual snapshots are then placed into this -shared volume.

The kernel patches are at
