ok, I accept your argument that sysfs is a lot smaller interface than
dmfs/ioctl.  However I'm not polluting nice clear abstractions like
dm_table with sysfs.  So I think we have to go the callback way.  It's
probably more work for you, but I need to draw these lines in order to
keep control of the complexity, your patch makes it more complicated
for people to understand and modify the code.

Sorry this isn't the answer you were hoping for :(
