[lustre-devel] Gerrit option - build only one backend

I see, but are there any "build-parameters" I can set? I haven't seen 
anything like that in another commits.

I want to prevent the osd-ldiskfs to be built since my stuff involves 
experimental interface changes for the backend and this build will fail 
at the moment.

None of the tests will run if any build fails, am I right? I wanted to 
have first some reviews before I change everything.

So either I (currently unnecessarily) adjust the ldiskfs path just for 
the build to pass or.. is there any or?
