[lvm-devel] [PATCH] Make use of new DM_UEVENT_GENERATED_FLAG in dm ioctl



This is user space part related to:

[dm-devel][PATCH] dm_ioctl: Introduce DM_UEVENT_GENERATED_FLAG
(initiated by: [dm-devel] [PATCH] dm_ioctl: Only send a change uevent when a resume ioctl changes the device.)

We need to know whether we should wait for any uevent or not when
using udev_sync. A patch was posted recently that changed the way
uevents are sent on dm device resume - it is sent only if the device
has been suspended before.

We have two options - either we get the state of the device before
being processed or have a possibility to get the information back in
the ioctl return saying whether uevent was generated or not. If the
uevent was not generated (e.g. the situation where the device is
*not* suspended and we call a resume), we just call dm_udev_complete
explicitly from withing libdevmapper itself.

This is quite important to prevent infinite waiting for any
non-existent notifications.
