Yes I know.  I saw that work-around in your original patch.
However this patch set isn't aimed at RHEL or SLES, it is aimed upstream.
And when we do things upstream we do them *right*.
If we then want to backport them to RHEL/SLES which require ABI
compatibility, then little hacks like the one you show (i.e. lying about the
size of the target when creating the log) may be perfectly appropriate.

Certainly it is appropriate to discuss this API change - that is why I
highlighted it in my introduction to the patch set.  Do you have an opinion
on it?

That is only in the earlier part of the patch set.  md/raid5 can work without
a dirty log at all.  When it does, it's behaviour is completely analogous to
working with a 'core' dirty log.  So to get the raid5 part working without
needing to worry about the dirty-log stuff, I told md/raid5 not to use a
dirty log, and pretended it was using a 'core' log.

Then in later patches after I had enabled md/bitmap to work with dm-log, I
switched dm-raid45 over to use a real dm-log and removed the restriction to
only using a core log.
So this is really just an artefact of the order in which I developed the
code.  I could go back and re-arrange it so the dm-log integration comes
first, then I wouldn't need this intermediate stage which only supports
'core'.

Thanks,
NeilBrown
