[lvm-devel] [PATCH] Add check for semaphore kernel support



We also need to check for kernel semaphore support (part of System V IPC,
kernel's CONFIG_SYSVIPC). If not compiled in the kernel, we need to disable
udev synchronisation code and show a warning message at least (so one knows
that it should be added in the kernel or that libdebmapper should be compiled
without udev_sync alternatively).

Inspired by util-linux-ng's ipcs code.

Initiated by the problem reported here:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=330375
