SubjectEVMS Submission for 2.5
Date
Linus,

On behalf of the EVMS team, I'd like to submit the Enterprise Volume
Management System for inclusion in the 2.5 Linux kernel tree.

To make this as simple as possible for you, there is a Bitkeeper
tree available with the latest EVMS source code, located at:
http://evms.bkbits.net/linux-2.5
This tree is sync'd with the linux-2.5 tree on linux.bkbits.net
as of about noon today (Oct 2).

EVMS provides a new, stand-alone subsystem to the kernel. Two new
subdirectories were created: drivers/evms/ for the main source code,
and include/linux/evms/ for the header files. There is no functional
affect on the existing kernel, and users can of course choose to
enable or disable EVMS when configuring their kernel.

In addition to the actual EVMS code, a handful of existing kernel
files were modified to allow EVMS to build and run correctly. I have
included below a patch (against 2.5.40) with these changes for you
to inspect. These changes are obviously also part of the Bitkeeper
tree above. Here are the changes in a nutshell:
- Add our contact info to the MAINTAINERS file.
- Add config options for EVMS to the config.in files for i386, ia64,
parisc, ppc, ppc64, s390, s390x, and x86_64.
- Add evms to the list of build directories in drivers/Makefile
- Add a function, walk_gendisk(), to drivers/block/genhd.c to allow
EVMS to get information about the disks on the system from the
gendisk list in a safe manner.
- Add function prototyes to fs.h and genhd.h
- Add the EVMS assigned major number (117) to major.h
- Add entries to sysctl.h to allow access to some EVMS internal
variables.
- Add a table entry and a short function to init/do_mounts.c to
allow an EVMS volume to be specified as the root filesystem with
the kernel command line option "root="

EVMS 1.0 was officially released in March of this year and is
building a strong base of users. Just this week, the new 1.2
version of EVMS was released. EVMS has been accepted into the
Debian (Woody and Sid versions) and UnitedLinux distributions,
well as a number of smaller distros. EVMS is actively undergoing
improvements and upgrades, and if it is accepted into the kernel,
we will serve as the active maintainers.

If you are interested in other information about EVMS, or would
like to obtain the user-space administration tools, please visit
our website at http://evms.sourceforge.net/.

Thank you very much for taking the time to consider this
submission. If you have any questions or comments, please email
us at any time. We will be happy to do whatever is necessary to
make EVMS acceptable for inclusion in the 2.5 tree.

Thank you,
