[dm-devel] [PATCH 1 of 2] dm log userspace split flush queue



Patch name: dm-log-userspace-split-flush-queue.patch

This patch splits a list of containing two different types of requests
into two lists containing distinct requests.

The device mapper log implementations (used by various DM targets) are
allowed to cache 'mark' and 'clear' requests until a 'flush' is
received.  Until now, these cached requests were kept in the same list.
They will now be put into distinct lists to facilitate group processing
of these requests (in the next patch).
