This would work, but I thing it's really confusing to have your
new discards_supported flag in the dm_target structure in addition
to the existing discards_supported in the dm_table and the
num_discard_requests field there.

May we should allow the target to set a tristate

enum discard_enabled {
	NEVER,
	ALWAYS,
	PASSTHROUGH
}

to indicate it's discard support?
