# Block device driver configuration

menuconfig MD
bool "Multiple devices driver support (RAID and LVM)"
depends on BLOCK
select SRCU
help
Support multiple physical spindles through a single logical device.
Required for RAID and logical volume management.
if MD
config BLK_DEV_MD
tristate "RAID support"
---help---
This driver lets you combine several hard disk partitions into one
logical block device. This can be used to simply append one
partition to another one or to combine several redundant hard disks
into a RAID1/4/5 device so as to provide protection against hard
disk failures. This is called "Software RAID" since the combining of
the partitions is done by the kernel. "Hardware RAID" means that the
combining is done by a dedicated controller; if you have such a
controller, you do not need to say Y here.
More information about Software RAID on Linux is contained in the
Software RAID mini-HOWTO, available from
<http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. There you will also learn
where to get the supporting user space utilities raidtools.
If unsure, say N.
config MD_AUTODETECT
bool "Autodetect RAID arrays during kernel boot"
depends on BLK_DEV_MD=y
default y
---help---
If you say Y here, then the kernel will try to autodetect raid
arrays as part of its boot process.
If you don't use raid and say Y, this autodetection can cause
a several-second delay in the boot time due to various
synchronisation steps that are part of this step.
If unsure, say Y.
config MD_LINEAR
tristate "Linear (append) mode"
depends on BLK_DEV_MD
---help---
If you say Y here, then your multiple devices driver will be able to
use the so-called linear mode, i.e. it will combine the hard disk
partitions by simply appending one to the other.
To compile this as a module, choose M here: the module
will be called linear.
If unsure, say Y.
config MD_RAID0
tristate "RAID-0 (striping) mode"
depends on BLK_DEV_MD
---help---
If you say Y here, then your multiple devices driver will be able to
use the so-called raid0 mode, i.e. it will combine the hard disk
partitions into one logical device in such a fashion as to fill them
up evenly, one chunk here and one chunk there. This will increase
the throughput rate if the partitions reside on distinct disks.

Software-RAID mini-HOWTO, available from
<http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. There you will also
learn where to get the supporting user space utilities raidtools.
To compile this as a module, choose M here: the module
will be called raid0.
If unsure, say Y.
config MD_RAID1
tristate "RAID-1 (mirroring) mode"
depends on BLK_DEV_MD
---help---
A RAID-1 set consists of several disk drives which are exact copies
of each other. In the event of a mirror failure, the RAID driver
will continue to use the operational mirrors in the set, providing
an error free MD (multiple device) to the higher levels of the
kernel. In a set with N drives, the available space is the capacity
of a single drive, and the set protects against a failure of (N - 1)
drives.

as a module, choose M here: the module will be called raid1.
If unsure, say Y.
config MD_RAID10
tristate "RAID-10 (mirrored striping) mode"
depends on BLK_DEV_MD
---help---
RAID-10 provides a combination of striping (RAID-0) and
mirroring (RAID-1) with easier configuration and more flexible
layout.
Unlike RAID-0, but like RAID-1, RAID-10 requires all devices to
be the same size (or at least, only as much as the smallest device
will be used).
RAID-10 provides a variety of layouts that provide different levels
of redundancy and performance.
RAID-10 requires mdadm-1.7.0 or later, available at:
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/raid/mdadm/
If unsure, say Y.
config MD_RAID456
tristate "RAID-4/RAID-5/RAID-6 mode"
depends on BLK_DEV_MD
select RAID6_PQ
select ASYNC_MEMCPY
select ASYNC_XOR
select ASYNC_PQ
select ASYNC_RAID6_RECOV
---help---
A RAID-5 set of N drives with a capacity of C MB per drive provides
the capacity of C * (N - 1) MB, and protects against a failure
of a single drive. For a given sector (row) number, (N - 1) drives
contain data sectors, and one drive contains the parity protection.
For a RAID-4 set, the parity blocks are present on a single drive,
while a RAID-5 set distributes the parity across the drives in one
of the available parity distribution methods.
A RAID-6 set of N drives with a capacity of C MB per drive
provides the capacity of C * (N - 2) MB, and protects
against a failure of any two drives. For a given sector
(row) number, (N - 2) drives contain data sectors, and two
drives contains two independent redundancy syndromes. Like
RAID-5, RAID-6 distributes the syndromes across the drives
in one of the available parity distribution methods.

projects should consider using DM_MULTIPATH which has more
features and more testing.
If unsure, say N.
config MD_FAULTY

config MD_CLUSTER
tristate "Cluster Support for MD (EXPERIMENTAL)"
depends on BLK_DEV_MD
depends on DLM
default n
---help---

nodes of the cluster.

config BLK_DEV_DM_BUILTIN
bool
config BLK_DEV_DM
tristate "Device mapper support"
select BLK_DEV_DM_BUILTIN
---help---
Device-mapper is a low level volume manager. It works by allowing
people to specify mappings for ranges of logical sectors. Various
mapping types are available, in addition people may write their own
modules containing custom mappings if they wish.
Higher level volume managers such as LVM2 use this driver.
To compile this as a module, choose M here: the module will be
called dm-mod.
If unsure, say N.

config DM_CACHE
tristate "Cache target (EXPERIMENTAL)"

default n
select DM_PERSISTENT_DATA
select DM_BIO_PRISON
---help---
dm-cache attempts to improve performance of a block device by
moving frequently used data to a smaller, higher performance
device. Different 'policy' plugins can be used to change the
algorithms used to select which blocks are promoted, demoted,
cleaned etc. It supports writeback and writethrough modes.
config DM_CACHE_MQ
tristate "MQ Cache Policy (EXPERIMENTAL)"
depends on DM_CACHE
default y
---help---
A cache policy that uses a multiqueue ordered by recent hit
count to select which blocks should be promoted and demoted.
This is meant to be a general purpose policy. It prioritises
reads over writes.
config DM_CACHE_CLEANER
tristate "Cleaner Cache Policy (EXPERIMENTAL)"
depends on DM_CACHE
default y
---help---

tristate "Era target (EXPERIMENTAL)"
depends on BLK_DEV_DM
default n
select DM_PERSISTENT_DATA

needed for live data migration tools such as 'pvmove'.
config DM_LOG_USERSPACE
tristate "Mirror userspace logging"

select CONNECTOR
---help---
The userspace logging module provides a mechanism for
relaying the dm-dirty-log API to userspace. Log designs

This device-mapper target creates a read-only device that
transparently validates the data on one underlying device against
a pre-generated tree of cryptographic checksums stored on a second

You'll need to activate the digests you're going to use in the
cryptoapi configuration.

config DM_SWITCH
tristate "Switch target support (EXPERIMENTAL)"
