NetBSD LVM support

NetBSD LVM support was committed in -current for a long time now but it was disabled by default. Today I have set MKLVM variable to yes by default which means that LVM will by included in all builds from now. I have also updated in tree LVM tools to their latest version 2.02.56.

With much appreciated help of Soren Jacobsen and Hubert Feyrer we was able to publish new LVM related chapter of the NetBSD guide. You can find and read it at LVM chapter.

I'm working on a RUMP based port of NetBSD device-mapper driver to make writing of new targets more easier.




As of 2009-12-19 lvm is not enabled on the modular kernel by default. will it make its way there also? (i tried that first, as bootsector update was necessary for modular kernel, and it was a bit difficult) Btw. it works great.

Gergely: you can just load the dm kernel module on MODULAR
