I do not understand why creating a linear device and then trying to create another linear device on top of it fails.
1.****** Creating a linear device over loop1:
===========================
dmsetup create linear_loop1 /tmp/linear_loop1

cat /tmp/linear_loop1
0 1000 linear /dev/loop1 0
2.****** Then creating another linear device over this linear device:
=============================================
dmsetup create linear_loop2 /tmp/linear_loop2

device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
Command failed

cat /tmp/klinear_loop2
0 1000 linear /dev/linear_loop1 0
*
Could you please explain what am I doing wrong?
