In general this approach looks fine too.  Doesn't address the concern I
had yesterday about the blk_integrity block_size relative to DM (load vs
resume) but I'd imagine you'd like to sort that out in a separate patch.

But I found a few DM issues below.  Provided those are sorted out:

(I'll defer to Jens and Neil for the block and MD bits)

Any reason you didn't just use 'unsigned integrity' like you did below
in the dm.h prototype?

Don't you need to bioset_free(pools->bs) if bioset_integrity_create()
fails?  So you'd need a new 'free_bioset_and_out' label.  Also seems
like maybe you had some extra whitespace on the goto?
