From: NeilBrown <neilb <at> suse.de>
Subject: [PATCH 000 of 11] md: Introduction - assort md enhancements for 2.6.18
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.raid
Date: Monday 1st May 2006 05:29:56 UTC (over 11 years ago)
The follow 11 patch are assorted tidy-ups and functionality
enhancements suitable for 2.6.18 when that opens up.

More interesting patches are:
 5 - merge raid5 and raid6 code into a single module.  There is a lot
      of common code here, and there are advantages in uniting it all.
 8 - allow a linear array to be expanded while online by adding an
     extra drive.
 10- A new flavour of 'raid10' which matches one of the layouts
     supported by 'DDF' - an industry standard raid metadata format
     which might be supported one day.  This will need an updated
     mdadm to experiment with.

Thanks,
NeilBrown
