How about using ->resume as a cancelling method?
Though you have to audit existing targets' ->resume handler,
I think it's better idea than adding another target handler
just for this purpose.

And in your dm-raid1 patch, cancelling log's presuspend which is used
by dm-log-userspace is missed.
So it seems that dm-raid1 can use ->resume to cancel presuspend.
