2013-09-11aoe: remove do-nothing NAME="%k" term from example udev rulesEd Cashin1-1/+1
When the example udev rules in the documentation are used without modification, warnings like the one shown below appear in the system logs: /var/log/messages:Aug 22 11:09:11 kung udevd[445]: NAME="%k" \ is superfluous and breaks kernel supplied names, please remove \ it from /etc/udev/rules.d/60-aoe.rules:26 Removing the term does not cause any problems with the creation of the special character and block device nodes.

2012-12-18aoe: allow user to disable target failure timeoutEd Cashin1-1/+3
With this change, the aoe driver treats the value zero as special for the aoe_deadsecs module parameter. Normally, this value specifies the number of seconds during which the driver will continue to attempt retransmits to an unresponsive AoE target. After aoe_deadsecs has elapsed, the aoe driver marks the aoe device as "down" and fails all I/O. The new meaning of an aoe_deadsecs of zero is for the driver to retransmit commands indefinitely.

2012-10-05aoe: update documentation with new URL and VM settings referenceEd Cashin1-3/+6
The old area has a new URL. Also, now that the driver can perform better, it is worth mentioning the VM settings that help aoe to sink dirty pages out early, avoiding unecessary memory pressure when much I/O is going on.

2012-03-30Documentation: remove references to /etc/modprobe.confLucas De Marchi2-3/+3
Usage of /etc/modprobe.conf file was deprecated by module-init-tools and is no longer parsed by new kmod tool. References to this file are replaced in Documentation, comments and Kconfig according to the context. There are also some references to the old /etc/modules.conf from 2.4 kernels that are being removed.

2010-08-04Documentation: update broken web addresses.Justin P. Mattock1-1/+1
Below you will find an updated version from the original series bunching all patches into one big patch updating broken web addresses that are located in Documentation/* Some of the addresses date as far far back as 1995 etc... so searching became a bit difficult, the best way to deal with these is to use web.archive.org to locate these addresses that are outdated. Now there are also some addresses pointing to .spec files some are located, but some(after searching on the companies site)where still no where to be found. In this case I just changed the address to the company site this way the users can contact the company and they can locate them for the users. Signed-off-by: Justin P.

2008-02-08aoe: user can ask driver to forget previously detected devicesEd L. Cashin2-0/+3
When an AoE device is detected, the kernel is informed, and a new block device is created. If the device is unused, the block device corresponding to remote device that is no longer available may be removed from the system by telling the aoe driver to "flush" its list of devices. Without this patch, software like GPFS and LVM may attempt to read from AoE devices that were discovered earlier but are no longer present, blocking until the I/O attempt times out.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
