I am pleased to announce the availability of
mdadm version 2.6.9
It is available at the usual places:
and via git at
mdadm is a tool for creating, managing and monitoring
device arrays using the "md" driver in Linux, also
known as Software RAID arrays.
Release 2.6.9 contains various bug fixes.
Clearly 2.6.8 was not the final 2.x release.
Hopefully 2.6.9 will be as I don't want go to 2.7, and
2.6.10 might be confusing (though I'll probably go that
way if I need to).
New features will only appear in the 3.x series of which 3.0 will be
release within a few months.
Bernhard Reutner-Fischer (1):
mdadm fix compilation for uClibc
Dustin Kirkland (2):
Fail overtly when asprintf fails to allocate memory
Typo in earlier patch : asprintf -> vasprintf
Allow --config in --incremental mode.
Kill: Don't use O_EXCL when --force is used.
Assemble: don't assume array is 'clean' unless all devices think it is.
Assemble: set stripe_cache_size properly when restarting a reshape.
map: rebuild map if it doesn't exist.
Free mdstat data structures properly.
Fix the used device size in mdadm -D output.
Document 'max' option to --grow --size in --help output.
Fix possible crash if bitmap metadata is bad.
Monitor: send --test message for arrays in /proc/mdstat that aren't in mdadm.conf
super1: make sure max_dev grows enough when adding a device to an array.
Development of mdadm is sponsored by
SUSE Labs, Novell Inc.
