Description Chris Adams 2001-05-02 14:10:59 EDT
Software RAID does not autorun on any platform that doesn't use MSDOS style
partition tables because the only partition type in fs/partitions that
calls md_autodetect_dev() is msdos.c.

I'm attaching a patch that should make RAID autorun work on OSF partitions
(although I cannot test it yet, since the installer crashes on me - bug
#38790).  Ideally, the add_gd_partition() function would be like the
add_partition() function in 2.2, where the partition type was passed in (or
just 0 if partitions didn't have types) and add_gd_partition would then
have the logic to call md_autodetect_dev().

Ingo: can you take a peek at this?
Comment 3 Chris Adams 2001-05-24 14:16:00 EDT
One other (possibly obvious) comment on this, especially since the release notes
with RC1 suggest software RAID: compile the RAID modules in to the default
kernel.  The above patch is useless without that.

Ingo? Arjan? anybody?
The above patch is not in the current cvs, is this a patch that we want? reject
or apply?
