Just remade a couple of filesystems and received an alignment msg I
don't recall receiving previously:

# mkfs.xfs -f -d su=64k,sw=12 /dev/s2d_a1l003

/dev/s2d_a1l003 is an alias to dm-0 which is a dm-multipath device to a
LUN on hardware RAID.  The hardware geometry is 64kx 12, 768k.  AFAIK no
geometry information has been specified for these device mapper devices
(someone else's responsibility).  Though I assume dm geometry data is
the reason for mkfs.xfs throwing this alert.  I don't find anything in
/sys/devices/virtual/block/dm-0/ indicating geometry.

Any ideas how to verify what's going on here and fix it?

Thanks,
Stan
