[dm-devel] [PATCH 25 of 33] DM Exception Store: add shared_uuid



Patch name: dm-exception-store-add-shared_uuid.patch

This patch adds the shared_uuid to the dm_exception_store structure.
Exception store implementations can set this to a unique non-zero
value if they wish to express that the back-end is optimized for
sharing.
