[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW lib/filters/filter.c



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2

Log message:
	Support improperly formated device numbers
	
	There are kernel drivers (smblk) which set '-1' as their device major number.
	This number is listed in /proc/devices then - but the kernel itself is using
	just 12 bits - thus device is accessible via 4095 - there is posted patch
	for 3.4 to fix this behavior (0 for auto allocation was mean to be used).
	
	However to still allow using such devices with older kernels add some code
	to use same behavior - so cut 12 bits from the major number from /proc/devices.
	
	For now use log_warn() - maybe the severity of the message could be lowered
	to just verbose level.
