[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW_DM libdm/ioctl/libdm-iface.c



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	agk sourceware org	2011-03-25 23:50:35

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW_DM 
	libdm/ioctl    : libdm-iface.c 

Log message:
	Use hard-coded /dev/mapper/control details for 2.6.36+ kernels and simplify
	associated code.  (Some obscure configurations that happened to work before
	are no longer supported.)

 Version 1.02.64 - 
 ===================================
+  Streamline /dev/mapper/control node code for common cases.
+  Use hard-coded dm control node device number for 2.6.36 kernels and above.
   Improve stack debug reporting in dm_task_create().
   Fallback to control node creation only if node doesn't exist yet.
   Change dm_hash API for binary data to accept const void *key.
