NetBSD LVM GSOC project
This I have applied to Google Summer of Code with Write and improve
NetBSD LVM driver application.
Linux LVM is done with two parts userland and kernel.
Userland part is lvm2tools + libdevmapper
Kernel part is kernel driver called device-mapper I keep device-mapper
sources available at .
Actual status of NetBSD device-mapper driver is this:
I have working linear target. It is possible to create ffs filesystem
on linear device-mapper
device and mount it. With help from reinoud@ I have rewritten big part
of device-mapper so now
we can write other targets like strip, mirror, crypt etc.. .
After discussion with my mentor I think that my task list is this:
Mandatory (must-have) components:
• design NetBSD kernel interface for LVM
• implement the kernel interface
• modify libdevmapper, dmsetup to use new interface
Optional (would-be-nice) components:
• demonstrate original Linux tools working with new libdevmapper
• configure linear LVM partition
I have created design file for new device-mapper->libdevmapper protocol.
This file is available at . Any comments ?
