[dm-devel] [PATCH 16/17] bottom-layer barrier support



dm-dmio-retry-barriers.patch

If -EOPNOTSUPP was returned and the request was a barrier request, retry it
without barrier.

Retry all regions (if there was just one region returning -EOPNOTSUPP), for
now, barriers are submitted only for 1-region requests, so it doesn't matter.

In the future, this can be fine-grained to retry only -EOPNOTSUPPed regions.
