Description Robert Peterson 2007-11-28 10:18:07 EST
Description of problem:
If you do gfs2_edit savemeta, it's not saving the contents of the
rindex file, which is vital.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 5.2 prototype

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gfs2_edit savemeta /dev/roth_vg/roth_lv /tmp/meta
2. gfs2_edit printsavedmeta /tmp/meta | less

Actual results:
/tmp/meta may contain the rindex metadata, but does not contain the
rindex data.

Expected results:
The rindex file should be saved in its entirety.
