http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/76618/
  - Fixes a serious bug (system stall) of request-based dm.
    No bug report yet, but I can reproduce it on my box.
    It has been existing since 2.6.31-rc1.
  - Should be sent for 2.6.33
  - Should be sent to -stable, too

dm-mpath-wait-for-pg_init-completion-when-suspending.patch # 76027
  - Fixes a possible serious bug (panic).
    But no bug report, I don't have any producer, and
    some cosmetic dependencies on other patches.
  - No need to send for 2.6.33 nor -stable for now.

Some other patches fix some minor bugs which display unnecessary
I/O errors, but such I/O errors have no serious effect.
So no need to send for 2.6.33 nor -stable.

Thanks,
Kiyoshi Ueda
