Description Valerie Aurora Henson 2009-08-26 19:44:30 UTC
mkfs.xfs should align the file system according to the exported device topology info.

Good summary page:

Comment 3 Eric Sandeen 2009-08-27 06:42:49 UTC
The plan is to export this info via libblkid as a standard interface, so this bug probably needs to depend on that feature (in util-linux-ng).


Comment 4 Eric Sandeen 2009-10-08 16:27:52 UTC
hch has sent patches to the xfs list for this.

Comment 5 chellwig@redhat.com 2009-10-10 21:56:29 UTC
The patch is now upstream.

Eric, do you want to backport it for more test coverage?  I hope we can spin a new xfsprogs release end of November / early December with the topology support and the repair memory usage improvements.

Comment 6 Eric Sandeen 2009-10-10 22:46:09 UTC
Thanks Christoph; I think we've likely missed the boat for F12 (we'd need updated blkid too, probably too much to sneak in now, though I can ask) and for RHEL5 the kernel bits are totally missing, so we'll probably just have to get it pushed into RHEL6 as soon as possible - after util-linux-ng gets an update ....

(we should ping sgi to pull to their tree too I suppose)

Comment 7 Eric Sandeen 2009-11-10 23:51:42 UTC
1799792 build (dist-f13, /cvs/pkgs:rpms/xfsprogs/devel:xfsprogs-3_0_3-2_fc13) completed successfully

Built in rawhide, now.

$ rpm -qp --changelog xfsprogs-3.0.3-3.el6.x86_64.rpm | more
* Fri Nov 20 2009 Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com> 3.0.3-3
- Fix up build issues w.r.t. off64_t

* Tue Nov 10 2009 Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com> 3.0.3-2
- Add trim/discard & libblkid support

the libblkid patch makes use of the topology info (which libdisk did before, anyway).

Comment 9 Eric Sandeen 2009-12-09 05:11:31 UTC
Actually I only got this right in xfsprogs-3.0.3-5 :)

What's in RHEL6 -today- is still missing these bits, but it should get pulled to RHEL6.


Comment 10 Eric Sandeen 2009-12-09 16:05:43 UTC
Ok, RHEL6 bits should be good now.

Comment 13 releng-rhel@redhat.com 2010-11-11 15:02:05 UTC
