[dm-devel] [PATCH, RFC] dm: relax discard restrictions



With targets like dm-thinp we might want to allow discard even if the
underlying devices don't support them natively.  This patch is the
extreme variant of not restricting discard support at all, but maybe
there are other options.  Or maybe we should keep the old
dm_table_supports_discards function as a helper for targets that
want simple discard passthrough?
