Description Heather Conway 2002-11-01 22:56:53 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0) Description of problem: Request to increase DK_MAX_MAJOR in include/linux/kernel_stat.h Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Request to increase DK_MAX_MAJOR in include/linux/kernel_stat.h from 99 to 255. This would allow for tracking of iostat performance metrix for pseudo devices that have major numbers greater than 99. Additional info:

What devices is this? Are the device numbers assigned by lanana ?
Comment 2 Heather Conway 2002-12-17 14:25:51 UTC
Our PowerPath developers are using major numbers 232-239 for our PowerPath multi-pathing product. I'm not familiar with Ianana....what is it?

Arjan, Heather asks "I'm not familiar with Ianana....what is it?"
Comment 4 Matt Domsch 2003-04-28 15:48:54 UTC
lanana is the Linux Assigned Names and Numbers Authority, who assigns the major/minor space for device nodes, as published on www.lanana.org and linux/Documentation/devices.txt. That's who you go to to offically request major/minor numbers for your devices. In kernel 2.4.9-e.18 DK_MAX_MAJOR is still 99, thus this won't be fixed in the Q2 errata.
Comment 5 Matt Domsch 2004-11-22 23:25:57 UTC
Heather, is this bug still relevant? RHEL2.1 Update 6 Public Beta kernel 2.4.9-e.51 still has DK_MAX_MAJOR set to 99. RHEL2.1 Update 7 is closed to all but Sev. 1 bugs, and there aren't any little-fix Updates planned. Can you close this as WONTFIX, given that it hasn't been, and won't be? -Matt
