commit 6a0671608bd94e75683fd5ca7ea006b9c7552de3
Author: Neil Brown <neilb at>
Date:   Fri Oct 19 14:13:04 2007 +1000

    Release 2.6.4

commit 25037aa872006fd4613d97e3d3da3c26c61e708f
Author: Neil Brown <neilb at>
Date:   Fri Oct 19 14:03:17 2007 +1000

    Remove partitions from a device before adding it to an array.
    The 'remove_partitions' call is in the wrong place and applying
    to the wrong file.

commit 570510ba32858ddedf20a055240ddbf39d3b76e1
Author: Neil Brown <neilb at>
Date:   Wed Oct 17 13:08:12 2007 +1000

    Add some extra consistency checks based on level.
    Also use LEVEL_LINEAR, LEVEL_MULTIPATH in place of -1 or -4 in a few places.

    Clarify the avail/used devices sizes with version1 superblock.
    Not all of the device may be available.  Of that, not all may be used
    (if devices are of different sizes).

commit dc2ee6b3e3330d8f8d7af11ae78b6f0e5e2e9d69

    Make sure --auto=mdp is honoured properly
    This would only create partitioned devices if the device name was a
    'standard' name.  This this patch, any name will work.

commit 6e9eac4f089a44e9091967a3e6198aeae7e845a3

    Fix restarting of a reshaping array.
    The last release broke the ability to assemble an array that
    was in the middle of a reshape.
    This patch adds code to test if the critical section needs
    to be restored or not so that - if we have failed to restore it,
    we know whether to fail or not.
