[dm-devel] [PATCH resend] block: silently error unsupported empty barriers too



With 2.6.31-rc5 in a KVM guest using dm and virtio_blk, we see the
following errors:

  end_request: I/O error, dev vda, sector 0
  end_request: I/O error, dev vda, sector 0

The errors go away if dm stops submitting empty barriers, by reverting:

  commit 52b1fd5a27c625c78373e024bf570af3c9d44a79
  Author: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka redhat com>
    dm: send empty barriers to targets in dm_flush

We should error all barriers, even empty barriers, on devices like
virtio_blk which don't support them.
