[dm-devel] [PATCH v3 11/12] dm snapshot: redirect accesses to origin if merging snap invalidated



From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka redhat com>

If we are merging invalidated snapshot, redirect all accesses to the
origin device.

Userspace code will remove the invalidated snapshot after a few
seconds, but during this period, the origin device must be active (it
may for example contain root filesystem and having unbootable computer
is not desirable).
