dm-linear
=========

Device-Mapper's "linear" target maps a linear range of the Device-Mapper
device onto a linear range of another device.  This is the basic building
block of logical volume managers.

Parameters: <dev path> <offset>
    <dev path>: Full pathname to the underlying block-device, or a
                "major:minor" device-number.
    <offset>: Starting sector within the device.


Example scripts
===============
[[
#!/bin/sh
# Create an identity mapping for a device
echo "0 `blockdev --getsize $1` linear $1 0" | dmsetup create identity
]]


[[
#!/bin/sh
# Join 2 devices together
size1=`blockdev --getsize $1`
size2=`blockdev --getsize $2`
echo "0 $size1 linear $1 0
$size1 $size2 linear $2 0" | dmsetup create joined
]]


[[
#!/usr/bin/perl -w
# Split a device into 4M chunks and then join them together in reverse order.

              (($dev_size % $extent_size) ? 1 : 0);

        my $this_start = $count * $extent_size;
        $extents--;
        $count++;
        my $this_offset = $extents * $extent_size;

        $table .= "$this_start $extent_size linear $dev $this_offset\n";
}

`echo \"$table\" | dmsetup create $name`;
