Jon,

I did my best to audit the snapshot-merge patches now that they are
layered on your clusterized exception store patches.  I uncovered a few
things that were missing; can provide details later if you like but the
revised patches tell the tale.  I also ported the merge speed-up patch
(dm-snapshot-merge-use-larger-io-when-merging.patch). All snapshot-merge
patches were compile tested to be bisectable; meaning each patch
compiles and the resulting dm-snapshot.ko loads cleanly.

But unfortunately when I only apply all of your patches (everything up
to the start of the snapshot-merge patches) I'm left with a dm-snapshot
that fails to work properly: snapshot LV fails my ext3 mount LVM
testsuite test that I posted to lvm-devel some weeks ago (sans the 4K
aspect; I didn't actually use the test script; I did the mount/unmount
procedure manually on a 512b sector drive).

I've uploaded a revised copy of your quilt tree here:
http://people.redhat.com/msnitzer/patches/snapshot-merge/kernel_unified/2.6.31/

Here is the diffstat of what I changed (started with your tarball):
