Wahoo! :)  Mike Tran and I noticed this yesterday, and were about to send you 
a nearly identical patch. Looks like you beat us to it.

Should this patch actually be "return -EINVAL;" (or something similar)? Just 
above this, the call to check_space() sets r to 0, so this patch is going to 
return success to the caller of dm_table_add_target() in this error path. 
Along the same lines, the error path for the call to adjoin() will also end 
up returning success from this function.

Patch 5 in the new 2.5.60 patchset has the same issue. The patch below ought 
to apply to both 2.4 and 2.5.
