Kernel Log: What's coming in 2.6.30 - Storage improvements

Filed under
Linux

With the fifth release candidate of Linux 2.6.30 out a few days ago, the development of the next kernel version in the main development line continues to progress. As indicated by Linus Torvalds in his release email, the changes are slowly decreasing in number and size, which is what usually happens at this development stage.

As every development cycle tends to have eight or nine pre-release versions which often appear on a weekly basis, it will be another few weeks before Torvalds releases Linux 2.6.30. Nevertheless, the Kernel Log will continue its review of the major changes in Linux 2.6.30 with the following overview of the new developments in the storage infrastructure and driver areas.

Flexible cooperation

The developers have made quite a few changes to the code for MD (Multiple Device) software RAIDs (see list at the end of this article), which now also allow the number of devices in a RAID 5 to be reduced.
