Feature #2851: krbd: RBD layering support
krbd: open parent on open
#1 Updated by Alex Elder about 11 years ago
This work is essentially done, and has been since
October 2012 (or even earlier). However I held off
posting it for review because (as I recall) Josh thought
we should not put partial support in, we should wait until
it is more fully supported before adding it in.
At this point it sits behind a large set (40+) of
patches that have not yet been reviewed anyway.
Many of those patches are ground work to facilitate
some of the other code implementing the I/O path for
layered objects. But again, activating parent probe
support is waiting until things are more fully done.

Included in that is a small, temporary patch that enables
this code, but again, it won't be activated "for real" until
the full support is done. I'll keep tagging this on as I
Anyway, I'll consider this "in progress" now.
