[PATCH v7 0/2] dm: boot a mapped device without an initramfs
From: Enric Balletbo i Serra
Date: Thu May 18 2017 - 12:29:33 EST
So here is a new version of the patches to be reviewed, this time as
suggested by Alasdair the patches are reworked to match with the new
dmsetup bootformat feature . These patches are not reviewed yet but
the format was discussed in the IRC and was suggested to send the
kernel patches in parallel.
Changes since v6:
- Add a new function to issue the equivalent of a DM ioctl programatically.
- Use the new ioctl interface to create the devices.
- Use a comma-delimited and semi-colon delimited dmsetup-like commands.
Changes since v5:
Wating for your feedback,
Enric Balletbo i Serra (1):
dm ioctl: add a device mapper ioctl function.
Will Drewry (1):
init: add support to directly boot to a mapped device
