It is already staged for linux-next (and upstream inclusion when the 3.1
merge window opens):
ftp://sources.redhat.com/pub/dm/patches/2.6-unstable/editing/patches/dm-crypt-optionally-support-discard-requests.patch

NOTE: this version of the patch depends on additional changes that were
also staged, e.g.:
ftp://sources.redhat.com/pub/dm/patches/2.6-unstable/editing/patches/dm-table-share-target-argument-parsing-functions.patch
