    When you wrote Drive in the title, I thought you meant Google Drive, especially since we don't talk much about drives for androids but sdcards usually.

    Google engineers are developing the DM-BOW device mapper driver with plans to use the code on Android devices to provide a restoration path should a system upgrade fail...

    Now this is cool. I use a Gentoo system, but I don't upgrade the way other people do. I have the gentoo installation fully scripted to make a filesystem image. So an upgrade to me is just booting to a newer image and dealing with userspace configuration differences. And this will be nice for my needs.

    How about actually update Android to handle updates properly rather than doing work-arounds.
