      Description

      From the manual "Setting the striping specification on the root directory determines the striping for all new files created in the file system unless an overriding striping specification takes precedence (such as a striping layout specified by the application, or set using lfs setstripe, or specified for the parent directory)." In a DNE setup, setting the default striping on the root directory only affects files created on MDT 0. See ll_dir_setstripe():

                      ...
                      buf = param;
                      /* Get fsname and assume devname to be -MDT0000. */
                      ll_get_fsname(inode->i_sb, buf, MTI_NAME_MAXLEN);
                      strcat(buf, "-MDT0000.lov");
      		buf += strlen(buf);
      
                      /* Set root stripesize */
                      sprintf(buf, ".stripesize=%u",
      			lump ? le32_to_cpu(lump->lmm_stripe_size) : 0);
                      rc = ll_send_mgc_param(mgc->u.cli.cl_mgc_mgsexp, param);
                      if (rc)
      		        GOTO(end, rc);
                      ...
