[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW lib/cache/lvmcache.c lib/cach ...



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	wysochanski sourceware org	2009-09-02 21:34:11

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW 
	lib/cache      : lvmcache.c lvmcache.h 
	lib/locking    : locking.c locking.h 

Log message:
	Enforce an alphabetical lock ordering for vgname locks.
	
	Add a new constraint that vgname locks must be obtained in
	alphabetical order.  At this point, we have test coverage for
	the 3 commands affected - vgsplit, vgmerge, and vgrename.
	Tests have been updated to cover these commands.
	Going forward any command or library call that must obtain
	more than one vgname lock must do so in alphabetical order.
	Future patches will update lvm2app to enforce this ordering.

 Version 2.02.52 -
 =================================
+  Enforce an alphabetical lock ordering for vgname locks.
+  Refactor vgsplit, vgmerge, and vgrename to obey vgname ordering rules.
   Implement write lock prioritisation for file locking and make it default.
   Fix clogd build direcory.
   Drop unrequired clogd Makefile.
