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



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	jbrassow sourceware org	2012-04-24 20:05:31

Log message:
	Allow a subset of failed devices to be replaced in RAID LVs.
	
	If two devices in an array failed, it was previously impossible to replace
	just one of them.  This patch allows for the replacement of some, but perhaps
	not all, failed devices.
