How does this work?  I'm trying to figure out the whole locking business
and it seems that mounting the device, or using it as a target in a dm
table place an exclusive lock on the device, so how can you add a linear
mapping to the origin device, if it is already used as a target in the
snapshot device, and thus locked?
