What about the kernel-specific stuff - does dmraid still require it's own module or can it use the raid456 from main tree? (I'm running with Gentoo's kernel with your patch added in).
My understanding has so far been than all that dmraid really does is some device-mapper magic that the kernel can use it's normal software raid functionalities on fakeraid arrays - eg. it just bootstraps the standard kernel drivers - raid45 has been a special case since even Linux's own software raid added support only recently. Or what's the deal?
(At least the fact that I've run into some patches for dmraid that make it use raid456 instead suggest this...)
Anyway, thanks for answers. -- - Antti _______________________________________________ Ataraid-list mailing list Ataraid-list@xxxxxxxxxx https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/ataraid-list
