Hi ,
   I want to write a kernel module that will perform read write operations on RAID device through md device driver.
    The solution i found is to generate read write call using ll_rw_block interface. Is this correct soln ? if yes then how should i go for it i.e. how to initialise buffer_head struct parameter etc...
     and if no please suggest what should i do ???

Kernel 2.4.20 using md device with RAID1 personality.

If the pointers I give you don't help, then it may be worthwhile posting this in the linux programming section. I have written one tiny bit of code for a kernel module that merely verified that a file existed, and most of that code was from an example in a book!..so I'm in very murky water here.

As you are probably aware, the point of the md device driver is to remove some of the complexity relating to the device itself, so I'd persume that you'd use exactly the same approace for say a SCSI device as you would for a hardware RAID device.

This site provides some very promising looking links to the type of article that I believe you need:

This article is probably what you are after as it deals specifically with RAID:
