kernel dm: remove KCOPYD_MAX_REGIONS restriction
Last modified: 2013-02-28 23:05:47 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #219189 +++
There is hardcoded kernel restriction of max. 8 destination regions for kcopyd
and this limits number of dm mirror legs.
Need to make this value configurable (dynamic).
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
Three years, no upstream fix and no real problem with this restriction -> closing.
It can be eventually fixed as part of feature which require this change.
