[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW_DM libdm/libdm-common.c



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	prajnoha sourceware org	2010-08-03 07:56:04

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW_DM 
	libdm          : libdm-common.c 

Log message:
	Add check for kernel semaphore support and disable udev_sync if not available.
	
	udev_sync feature requires semaphores (part of System V IPC) to be configured
	in kernel (CONFIG_SYSVIPC). Check whether it is supported and if not, give
	a warning message and disable udev synchronisation code automatically to
	avoid any further error states and associated problems.
	
	One should use the kernel with System V IPC support enabled or libdevmapper
	with udev_sync feature disabled.
