Description Denis Leroy 2007-03-22 13:01:27 UTC
There's a simple bug in config.c, long fixed in upstream, that makes it
impossible to use a write-intent bitmap. The config parsing code doesn't
correctly copy the bitmap filename. It's really a simple bug. Please find
attached patch. This affects FC-6.

Thanks :-)

Comment 2 Doug Ledford 2007-03-31 13:55:27 UTC
I've built mdadm-2.6.1 for fc6.  The release notes for 2.6.0 specifically
mention fixing a bitmap bug in the mdadm.conf file parsing.  If this bug isn't
fixed by the 2.6.1 mdadm, please reopen.
