If you try running xfstests on lvm volumes which are symlinks,

the lvm device (which is usually a symlink to a dm-X device)
is a block device.  Sigh.

Last try at this - just resolve any symlinked devicenames
into their realpath(3) in common.config.

This actually seems to work.

This patch has been committed to git://oss.sgi.com/xfs/cmds/xfstests, master 
branch, commit ID d5ea873f.

From: Satoru Takeuchi <takeuchi_satoru@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Commit d5ea873f is not the same as the the following original Eric's patch.


It does not modify src/Makefile and realpath is never compiled.

Yep, whoops.  Merge error . . .?

Yes sorry my bad.

In addition, `[ -L $TEST_DEV ]' and `[ -L $SCRATCH_DEV ]' always returns 0
if $TEST_DEV or $SCRATCH_DEV are not defined.

Well, I don't think ./check will get very far with an undefined TEST_DEV or
SCRATCH_DEV, but better this way, thanks.

I think so too. But setting $SCRATCH_DEV is optional anyaway (refer to README).
I forgot to specify $SCRATCH_DEV and found this problem.

Ah, right - yes, that's perfectly valid, sorry.  Not thinking straight :)


Eric, do you have time to correct these 2 errors or do want me submit a patch?
