But I have my work rules that I learned: I use no git kernels and no

solve problems like "does it crash because I pulled something or does it
crash because I made a bug in my code?" So, put that into 2.6.37-rc1 and
I'll optimize flushes in dm for -rc2 or -rc3.
Alright, I'm sorry but this is as far as I would go for dm conversion
patches.  If you wanna split it further or do it your way, please feel
free to.  I think it would be beneficial to do things now but, hey,
you guys are maintaining dm part of the kernel, so it's up to you
guys.  But, I think it would be silly for everyone else to wait for
the rather special requirement for dm, so if we have to go forward
without dm updates, I suppose we will have to.  Jens, please feel free
to drop dm conversion patches.


I think that we certainly want to continue to fix the whole path - including dm - so we do not end up with the fragmented set of works here/doesn't work there situation we had for several years. If Mikulas has better patches, he should post them for review.
