Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH 1/3] block: Add blk_queue_copy_limits()

Jens, what do you think about this?  Goes on top of what you have

block: Do not clamp max_hw_sectors for stacking devices

Stacking devices do not have an inherent max_hw_sector limit.  Set the
default to INT_MAX so we are bounded only by capabilities of the
underlying storage.
