lvm2 - Userland logical volume management tools
LVM2 includes all of the support for handling read/write operations on physical volumes (hard disks, RAID-Systems, magneto optical, etc., multiple devices (MD), see mdadd(8) or even loop devices, see losetup(8)), creating volume groups (kind of virtual disks) from one or more physical volumes and creating one or more logical volumes (kind of logical partitions) in volume groups.

- Mitigate annoying error warning from device is usable check if run as non-root. - Fallback to control node creation only if node doesn't exist yet. - Avoid possible endless loop in _free_vginfo when 4 or more VGs have same name. - Fix to make resuming exclusive cluster mirror use local target type. - Lower secure data flag warning to verbose level if unsupported by kernel.
