[lustre-discuss] lshowmount equivalent?

I've pushed patch http://review.whamcloud.com/17593 to restore this tool
to the tree, but I'm not even sure if it builds yet.  If someone with a
vested interest in using this tool could take over that patch, then it can
land in a finite time, as I've never used it myself and have lots of other
things to work on.

That means someone who knows how this tool is supposed to work needs to
fix any compile problems, test it a bit manually, and make a short test in
conf-sanity.sh that verifies it continues to work as expected in the

I don't mind to carry this in the Lustre tree, so that it can be updated
as things change (e.g. /proc to /sys conversion and such), but it needs at
minimum a new test so that it doesn't silently break in the future.

Cheers, Andreas
