[dm-devel] A BUG in snapshot merging



I got this BUG when attempting to use merged patchset of Mike's and Jon's 
patches (from 
http://people.redhat.com/msnitzer/patches/snapshot-merge/kernel_unified/2.6.31/)

I think we shouldn't join these two patchsets together. I mean, before 
clustered patches, merging was stable (I reviewed and tested it and except 
for one userspace bug (already fixed) there were no flaws) ... now it 
doesn't work.

I would recommend to leave merging as it was (i.e. stable, apply only 
little patches on it) and develop Jon's clustering on the top of merging 
and not interleave it with merging, so that the clustering patches could 
be rolled back if problems were found. When clustering will be stable and 
reviewed, it could be added to the kernel --- but it may happen later than 
merging, so don't mix it.
