[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW_DM udev/13-dm-disk.rules



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	prajnoha sourceware org	2012-02-15 14:50:34

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW_DM 
	udev           : 13-dm-disk.rules 

Log message:
	Add watch rule to 13-dm-disk.rules.
	
	We don't have anything better yet...
	
	The problems the watch rule caused when removing devices should be covered
	now with the "retry remove" logic. It's also better to have this maintained
	by us, rather than having this rule anywhere else without proper control.
