Hi Kevin,

here is an updated patch for the ceph/rbd driver. I hope that everything 
is fine now.

Regards,
Christian


This is a block driver for the distributed file system Ceph
(http://ceph.newdream.net/). This driver uses librados (which
is part of the Ceph server) for direct access to the Ceph object
store and is running entirely in userspace. Therefore it is
called "rbd" - rados block device.

To compile the driver a recent version of ceph (unstable/testing git
head or 0.20.3 once it is released) is needed.

Additional information is available on the Ceph-Wiki:

http://ceph.newdream.net/wiki/Kvm-rbd

The patch is based on git://repo.or.cz/qemu/kevin.git block

I'll try to get to give it a final review later this week. In the
meantime, I would be happy to see another review by someone else.

Do you have some specific tests for the driver or should we extend
qemu-iotests to work with protocols and use only that?

Right now I don't have any specific tests, but I'll take a look at
qemu-iotests soon.
