The Linux Kernel Device Mapper is the LVM (Linux Logical Volume Management)
Team's implementation of a minimalistic kernel-space driver that handles
volume management, while keeping knowledge of the underlying device layout
in user-space. This makes it useful for not only LVM, but EVMS, software
raid, and other drivers that create "virtual" block devices.
This package contains the (user-space) shared library for accessing the
device-mapper; it allows usage of the device-mapper through a clean,
consistent interface (as opposed to through kernel ioctls).
