@stellarhopper stellarhopper released this Aug 7, 2019

This release incorporates functionality up to the 5.3 kernel, and adds a
number of bug fixes, and improvements.

Highlights include a new command to reconfigure dax devices to
different modes (devdax - default, and system-ram - to hotplug the dax
device as system memory), improvements to ndctl-{read,write,init}-labels
allowing smaller sized reads/writes, usability fixes to ndctl-monitor,
and ndctl-create-namespace, and a fix to ndctl-check-namespace allowing
it to be used on systems with different page sizes.

Commands:
  daxctl-reconfigure-device: new command for device mode management
  daxctl-{on,off}line-memory: new commands for devices in system-ram mode
  monitor: logging improvements, allow sending to background
  inject-error: refuse to operate on activew BTT namespaces
  *-labels: improvements to minimize data transfer
  create-namespace: usability improvements around region search

Tests:
  security.sh: handle backup keys, mark test as 'destructive'
  device-dax: fix bus-model detection
  daxctl-devices: new test for daxctl-reconfigure-device
