[dm-devel] [PULL REQUEST] md updates for 2.6.36



Hi Linus,
 here is my merge-window pull request for md.
 The bulk of this update is changes to allow md/raid5 to be plugged
 into dm as a dm target.  The changes to dm to make this happen are
 with the dm maintainer who has given in-principle agreement - they
 just need to be carefully reviewed.

 The remainder are some deadlock fixes which are tagged for -stable,
 one of which should have been around for quite some time, but have
 only manifested recently for some strange reason.

Thanks,
NeilBrown
