[dm-devel] [PATCH 4/8] dm core: add target interfaces for request-based dm



This patch adds the following target interfaces for request-based dm.

  map_rq    : for mapping a request

  rq_end_io : for finishing a request

  busy      : for avoiding performance regression from bio-based dm.
              Target can tell dm core not to map requests now, and
              that may help requests in the block layer queue to be
              bigger by I/O merging.
              In bio-based dm, this behavior is done by device
              drivers which managing the block layer queue.
              But in request-based dm, dm core has to do that
              since dm core manages the block layer queue, and
              target drivers help is needed for it.
