[dm-devel] dm-thin: commit metadata bug



There is a bug in committing metadata --- you can't commit metadata if 
there is any copying or zeroing in flight. The problem is that in this 
case, the block you are copying to is already allocated, but it is not 
linked anywhere in the metadata. So it creates lost blocks in case of 
crash.
