No, only that the copying of the config llog from the MGS to the OST has been removed. The llog subsystem still is used to maintain distributed operation consistency.

"Lustre 2.4" is the anticipated release number when that change might become available. As yet, it is still pre-alpha code, and while this change is available in bugzilla as a series of patches, it would need some effort to port it for 1.8.

Cheers, Andreas
