[openFATE 320342] Add btrfs subvolume options to autoyast
Feature changed by: Lukas Ocilka (locilka)
Feature #320342, revision 7
Title: Add btrfs subvolume options to autoyast

Requested by: Matthias Eckermann (mge1512)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Currently you can't specify btrfs subvolume options is a autoYaST
control file. E.g. the standard install of Leap 42.1 creates four
subvolumes with option "no copy on write":
@/var/lib/libvirt/images
@/var/lib/mariadb
@/var/lib/mysql
@/var/lib/pgsql
There ought to be a way to achieve this with autoYaST.
Currently subvolumes are specified as:
<subvolumes config:type="list">
<listentry>boot/grub2/i386-pc</listentry>
<listentry>boot/grub2/x86_64-efi</listentry>
<listentry>home</listentry>
</subvolumes>
a possibly syntax could be e.g.:
<subvolumes config:type="list">
<subvolume>
<subvolume-path>var/lib/pgsql</subvolume-path>
<subvolume-options>nodatacow,noacl</subvolume-options>
</subvolume>
</subvolumes>
or make the subvolume-options a list..
Also the installer should respect these options and autoyast should use
them when creating a reference profile.

Relations:
- Add btrfs subvolume options to autoyast (feature/copiedfrom: 319895)
- YaST- AutoYaST Alignment (feature/id: 320287)

Use Case:
Allow to adjust subvolumes attributes properly for the specific
workload - e.g. when having a 3rd party database at a custom path,
there is no way to create a subvolume for the database on a specific
path with NoCoW option.

Jri, another AutoYaST one which we either implement solely - or
together with 320287 (my preference). Let's discuss later today.

#3: Jiri Srain (jsrain) (2016-01-25 14:21:41) (reply to #2)
This is to be handled solely, independently on the AutoYaST unification
with YaST.

+ #4: Lukas Ocilka (locilka) (2016-02-05 13:00:46) (reply to #3)
+ But we should do it in sync with #317775: AutoYaST support for
+ arbitrary btrfs subvolume structure
