Adaptec metadata (and other) patches for md

Table of Contents


I'm pleased to announce the availability of a new set of md patches that fix some bugs, and implement some new features.

The patchset is against 2.4.18, and is available below.

This work is sponsored by Adaptec.

Questions or feedback? Let me know.

Basic summary of changes and features:

Note that you can't really create or manage an Adaptec metadata array from userland. You basically have to create the array using a RAID controller, and then you can detect it and use it with md.
