# Udev rules for device-mapper devices.
# These rules create a DM control node in /dev/(DM_DIR) directory.
# The rules also create nodes named dm-x (x is a number) in /dev
# directory and symlinks to these nodes with names given by
# the actual DM names. Some udev environment variables are set
# for use in later rules:
# DM_NAME - actual DM device's name
# DM_UUID - UUID set for DM device (blank if not specified)
# DM_SUSPENDED - suspended state of DM device (0 or 1)
# DM_UDEV_RULES_VSN - DM udev rules version
# These rules cover only basic device-mapper functionality in udev.
# Various DM subsystems may contain further subsystem-specific rules
# in 11-dm-<subsystem_name>.rules which should be installed together
# with the DM subsystem and which extend these basic rules.
# For example:
# 11-dm-lvm.rules for LVM subsystem
# 11-dm-mpath.rules for multipath subsystem (since version 0.6.0, recommended!)
# Even more specific rules may be required by subsystems so always
# check subsystem's upstream repository for recent set of rules.
# Also, keep in mind that recent rules may also require recent
# subsystem-specific binaries.

# Device created, major and minor number assigned - "add" event generated.
# Table loaded - no event generated.
# Device resumed (or renamed) - "change" event generated.
# Device removed - "remove" event generated.
# The dm-X nodes are always created, even on "add" event, we can't suppress
# that (the node is created even earlier with devtmpfs). All the symlinks
# (e.g. /dev/mapper) are created in right time after a device has its table
# loaded and is properly resumed. For this reason, direct use of dm-X nodes
# is not recommended.

# Decode udev control flags and set environment variables appropriately.
# These flags are encoded in DM_COOKIE variable that was introduced in
# kernel version 2.6.31. Therefore, we can use this feature with
# kernels >= 2.6.31 only. Cookie is not decoded for remove event.

ENV{DISK_RO}=="1", GOTO="dm_disable"
# There is no cookie set nor any flags encoded in events not originating
# in libdevmapper so we need to detect this and try to behave correctly.
# For such spurious events, regenerate all flags from current udev database content
# (this information would normally be inaccessible for spurious ADD and CHANGE events).
# Normally, we operate on "change" events. But when coldplugging, there's an
# "add" event present. We have to recognize this and do our actions in this
# particular situation, too. Also, we don't want the nodes to be created
# prematurely on "add" events while not coldplugging. We check
# DM_UDEV_PRIMARY_SOURCE_FLAG to see if the device was activated correctly
# before and if not, we ignore the "add" event totally. This way we can support
# udev triggers generating "add" events (e.g. "udevadm trigger --action=add" or
# "echo add > /sys/block/<dm_device>/uevent"). The trigger with "add" event is
# also used at boot to reevaluate udev rules for all existing devices activated
# before (e.g. in initrd). If udev is used in initrd, we require the udev init
# script to not remove the existing udev database so we can reuse the information
# stored at the time of device activation in the initrd.

# Putting it together, following table is used to recognize genuine and spurious events.
# N.B. Spurious events are generated based on use of the WATCH udev
# rule or by triggering an event manually by "udevadm trigger" call
# or by "echo <event_name> > /sys/block/dm-X/uevent".

# "dm" sysfs subdirectory is available in newer versions of DM
# only (kernels >= 2.6.29). We have to check for its existence
# and use dmsetup tool instead to get the DM name, uuid and
# suspended state if the "dm" subdirectory is not present.
# The "suspended" item was added even later (kernels >= 2.6.31),
# so we also have to call dmsetup if the kernel version used
# is in between these releases.

# dmsetup tool provides suspended state information in textual
# form with values "Suspended"/"Active". We translate it to
# 0/1 respectively to be consistent with sysfs values.
# This variable provides a reliable way to check that device-mapper
# rules were installed. It means that all needed variables are set
# by these rules directly so there's no need to acquire them again
# later. Other rules can alternate the functionality based on this
# fact (e.g. fallback to rules that behave correctly even without
# these rules installed). It also provides versioning for any
# possible future changes.
# VSN 1 - original rules
# VSN 2 - add support for synthesized events
# Avoid processing and scanning a DM device in the other (foreign)
# rules if it is in suspended state. However, we still keep 'disk'
# and 'DM subsystem' related rules enabled in this case.
