[RFC/PATCH 0/2] support for CMS-formatted disks on the s/390 architecture
Fri, 16 Apr 2010 22:46:26 -0500
The inimitable Stephen Powell sent something like the two patches
below to <http://bugs.debian.org/578097>. It seems that they teach
the dasd driver in parted to handle CMS-labeled partitions, which are
a little more flexible and probably more common than the LDL format
libparted already supports.
Unfortunately, I do not have a specimen to experiment with, so I
cannot say if my whitespace tweaks and so on broke the patch.
Stephen, would it be possible to put up an image of a tiny partition
to try this out with?
The support is for reading only because that is what is most needed.
I don’t imagine there would be any major technical obstacles to
teaching parted to write these partitions, too.
Stephen Powell (2):
dasd: take sector size into account when calculating starting block
dasd: add read-only support for CMS labeled minidisks
