mdadm 3.2.3-2ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


mdadm (3.2.3-2ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian testing. (LP: #920324)  Remaining changes:
    - Call checks in local-premount to avoid race condition with udev
      and opening a degraded array.
    - d/initramfs/mdadm-functions: Record in /run when boot-degraded
      question has been asked so that it is only asked once
    - pass --test to mdadm to enable result codes for degraded arrays.
    - Build udeb with -O2 on ppc64, working around a link error.
    - debian/control: we need udev and util-linux in the right version. We
      also remove the build dependency from quilt and docbook-to-man as both
      are not used in Ubuntus mdadm.
    - debian/initramfs/hook: kept the Ubuntus version for handling the absence
      of active raid arrays in <initramfs>/etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf
    - debian/initramfs/script.local-top.DEBIAN, debian/mdadm-startall,
      debian/ removed. udev does its job now instead.
    - debian/mdadm-startall.sgml, debian/mdadm-startall.8: documentation of
      unused startall script
    - debian/mdadm.config, debian/mdadm.postinst - let udev do the handling
      instead. Resolved merge conflict by keeping Ubuntu's version.
    - debian/mdadm.postinst, debian/mdadm.config, initramfs/init-premount:
      boot-degraded enablement; maintain udev starting of RAID devices;
      init-premount hook script for the initramfs, to provide information at
    - debian/ is the older mkconf. Kept the Ubuntu version.
    - debian/rules: Kept Ubuntus version for installing apport hooks, not
      installing un-used startall script and for adding a udev rule
      corresponding to mdadm.
    - debian/install-rc, check.d/_numbers, check.d/root_on_raid: Ubuntu partman
      installer changes
    - debian/presubj: Dropped this unused bug reporting file. Instead use act as an apport hook for bug handling.
    - rename debian/mdadm.vol_id.udev to debian/mdadm.mdadm-blkid.udev so that
      the rules file ends up with a more reasonable name
    - d/p/debian-changes-3.1.4-1+8efb9d1ubuntu4: mdadm udev rule
      incrementally adds mdadm member when detected. Starting such an
      array in degraded mode is possible by mdadm -IRs. Using mdadm
      -ARs without stopping the array first does nothing when no
      mdarray-unassociated device is available. Using mdadm -IRs to
      start a previously partially assembled array through incremental
      mode. Keeping the mdadm -ARs for assembling arrays which were for
      some reason not assembled through incremental mode (i.e through
      mdadm's udev rule).
