None, really. Why does md put it's headers in include/linux/raid ???
We can put them wherever.

Because it is getting crowded. Why does every filesystem create it's own
directory in fs? Maybe drivers/vm/md drivers/vm/dm drivers/vm/evms would
be better. Again, we can put it wherever, this just seems like a logical

MD is legacy code from the time where people still liked kernel headers

Well, evms is not a single driver but a higher layer with lots of subdrivers.
E.g. once you start to use the MD code without copying it around it's in
drivers/md anyway and LVM! th?t is there currently will go away.
