SubjectPATCH] linux-2.5.24 - LDM (Dynamic Disks)
Hi Linus,

[copy sent to Linus with inline patch]

Please can you apply the following patch to 2.5.24.

It's a complete rewrite of the LDM driver (support for Windows Dynamic
Disks). Below is a one line summary, a full description and the patch.

LDM Driver rewritten. More efficient. Much smaller memory footprint.

The old driver was little more than a stopgap.
The new driver is a complete rewrite
based on a much better understanding of the database
based on much more reverse engineering
more able to spot errors and inconsistancies
it has a much smaller memory footprint
no longer considered experimental
accompanied by brief info: Documentation/ldm.txt
