Attached is the patch for Raid6 support for EVMS 2.5.3
(sorry, I have not upgraded to 2.5.4 so this patch is
untested on that version and right now I do not have
the time to patch it and test it out).
The patch has been tested for successfull cases.
All raid levels work in creating and deleting the raid
array, as well as clearing volumes and filesystems on
top of it. Resizing/shrinking has not been thourroughly
tested so there may be some problems there. I've been
using EVMS 2.5.3 with Gentoo Linux 2.6.15 for over a
week now and it has been working well. Raid6 requires a
minimum of 4 disks to be created. All other
functionality inherits from the current Raid5
functionality in EVMS.
If you have any questions please let me know at
