Just in case, I broke the patch in this mail down here
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~michaelc/block/dm/mpath/

It basically breaks it up into removing the creation/destruction
callbacks. Then adds the new pg init code. And finally removes the old
pg_init code. Each patch is not compilable by itself so it is not
git-revertable, but maybe it will be easier for you to read.
