FYI, I added my "Signed-off-by" because I had to update this patch to
account for changes from these upstream linux-2.6 commits:

2913808e (dm snapshot: refactor __find_pending_exception)
c6621392 (dm snapshot: avoid dropping lock in __find_pending_exception)
0cea9c78 (dm exception store: move dm_target pointer)
