Well that's a rather grave sounding bug.  Two days and nobody from DM land
has commented?  Hello?

I'll tag this as needed in 2.6.23.x as well.

I'll duck the "dm: struct io_restriction reordered" patch.  People have
been changing things around in there and I had to fix a reject in "dm:
bounce_pfn limit added" to make it apply - let's not complicate life.

However it is a good change and hopefully the DM people will pick it up.
