     geom_linux_lvm — GEOM based Linux LVM logical volume mapping

     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   options GEOM_LINUX_LVM

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the

     The geom_linux_lvm framework provides support for mapping Linux LVM vol‐
     umes to GEOM providers.  geom_linux_lvm currently supports linear stripes
     with segments on one or more physical disks.  The parser is able to read
     LVM2 Text Format metadata, the logical volumes will be assembled and made
     available under /dev/linux_lvm/.  The metadata is read-only, logical vol‐
     umes cannot be allocated or resized.
