multipath-tools (0.5.0+git1.656f8865-5ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
[ Mauricio Faria de Oliveira ]
* Remove partition device nodes of individual paths (for LVM on multipath)
on the new multipath-tools with udev property blacklisting (LP: #1540401)
- debian/ replace 'multipath -c' with
'multipath -u' which can read udev properties at PROGRAM-rule time
(when udev properties are not yet written to the udev database).
- debian/initramfs/init-top: start multipathd before udev (required by
'multipath -u' in the udev rules)
- debian/initramfs/local-top: remove snippet to start multipathd.
* Remove debian/initramfs/local-top (redundant with other initramfs scripts):
- init-top: start multipathd.
- init-top: load modules (dm-multipath and SCSI device handlers); move the
missing dm-emc there (now scsi-dh-emc; see BTS 567014).
- local-premount: settle on udev events; and the extra call due to
multipath discovery in udev rules is no longer required with multipathd
in initramfs.
- debian/rules: do not install local-top anymore.
* debian/initramfs/local-premount: run multipath with -B so not to assign
names nor change /etc/multipath/bindings during initramfs (LP: #1561103)
* debian/patches/enable-find-multipaths.patch: re-enable find_multipaths
by default -- see the removed 'add_find-multipaths.patch' (LP: #1463046)
