[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm-thin-metadata: set the number of reserved buffers



dm-thin-metadata: set the number of reserved buffers

Set the number of reserved buffers to 6.

Note: this value was found experimentally (I disabled new buffer 
allocation and tested that dm-thin deadlocks with 5 or less buffers). Joe, 
please so some code analysis and check the value.
