Hi, I am a developer on the IBM Total Storage Multipathing Subsystem Device
Driver (SDD) at IBM.

We create /dev/vpathX devices, and LVM does not work with these devices.
Here is a patch to the LVM source code to get LVM to work with our devices.
What is the view in terms of getting this patch accepted into the
mainstream code, especially since this is for some scum-sucking non-GPL
proprietary driver.

(See attached file: lvm-1.0.3-15.ibm-vpath.patch)
