[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm-kcopyd: Delayed unplug of the queues



dm-kcopyd: Delayed unplug of the queues

This patch improves performance aby about 20% when writing to the snapshot
origin. We keep track of two block devices to unplug (one for read and the
other for write) and unplug them when exiting "do_work" thread. If there are
more devices used (in theory it could happen, in practice it is rare), we
unplug immediatelly.
