kernel dm: bio split bvec fix
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:24 EST
The code that handles bios that span table target boundaries by breaking
them up into smaller bios will not split an individual struct bio_vec
into more than two pieces. Sometimes more than that are required.
This patch adds a loop to break the second piece up into as many
pieces as are necessary.
committed in stream u4 build 34.9. A test kernel with this patch is available
