Re: patch - cgdconfig do_all mode gracefully ignore detached devices
For -U, that could work (was actually how we handled it in an earlier
version). For -C, no. Our goal is to avoid cgd trying to configure a
device, like those backed by USB drives, on boot when the backing
device isn't attached. But perhaps rather than changing the semantics
of -C, we could add an alternate flag to provide this addition check?
Robert made some really good suggestions that I will incorporate and
provide an updated patch. Thanks for the feedback!
Thanks and regards,
