This is the proposed osdblk driver by Jeff Garzik. It as all the Kernel
pre-requisites, but is missing a user-mode tool and more testing. So I'm
not sure it will make it into this Kernel. But for review.

Jeff hi.

I've hacked up a very quick and dirty small utility for Creating / Removing / Resizing
objects on an OSD device. [I'm sending as reply to this mail]

Looks good to me!

Please give it a fast testing. Should we now submit the osdblk driver, for 2.6.31?
Which tree? I can push it through the tree. The driver was included for
some weeks in linux-next through that tree.

I'll try to give it a test early next week, as my OSD simulator setup is completely disassembled at the moment.

Yes, please go ahead and push the driver. In general, Linus accepts new drivers to the kernel at any time, even during a -rc, once the pre-reqs are upstream.
