[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW lib/metadata/metadata.c



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	mbroz sourceware org	2010-08-19 23:03:35

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW 
	lib/metadata   : metadata.c 

Log message:
	Change the pvcreate swap/md logic
	
	pvcreate detects MD and swap signature.
	
	The logic hidden there is not only documented but it is also
	user unfriendly. Who invented this logic should run pvcreate
	on its own critical MD device to see why;-)
	
	This patch
	- creates one function instead of duplication code
	- asks if user want to overwrite signature
	- allows aborting (!)
	(Please note that writing LVM signatute without wiping old
	is wrong, it confuses blkid, MD will not work anyway and
	swap and LUKS is broken too.)
