-dm-linear
-=========
-
-Device-Mapper's "linear" target maps a linear range of the Device-Mapper
-device onto a linear range of another device. This is the basic building
-block of logical volume managers.
-
-Parameters: <dev path> <offset>
- <dev path>: Full pathname to the underlying block-device, or a
- "major:minor" device-number.
- <offset>: Starting sector within the device.
-
-
-Example scripts
