[dm-devel] [PATCH 2 of 2] dm log userspace group clear and mark requests



Patch name: dm-log-userspace-group-clear-and-mark-requests.patch

This patch allows the device-mapper log 'mark' and 'clear'
requests to be grouped and processed in a batch.  This can
significantly reduce the amount of traffic going between
the kernel and userspace (where the processing daemon resides).
