[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW doc/example.conf.in lib/metad ...



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	snitzer sourceware org	2011-04-13 18:26:39

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW 
	doc            : example.conf.in 
	lib/metadata   : pv_manip.c 
	man            : lvm.conf.5.in 

Log message:
	Improve the discard documentation.  Also improve discard code in
	pv_manip.c to properly account for case when pe_start=0 and the first
	physical extent is to be released (currently skip the first extent to
	avoid discarding the PV label).

 Version 2.02.85 - 
 ===================================
   Add "devices/issue_discards" to lvm.conf.
-  Issue discards on lvremove if enabled and both storage and kernel have support.
+  Issue discards on lvremove, lvreduce, etc if enabled and supported.
   Fix incorrect tests for dm_snprintf() failure.
   Fix some unmatching sign comparation gcc warnings in the code.
   Allow lv_extend() to work on zero length intrinsically layered LVs.
