[dm-devel] [PATCH v2] dm: pass up non-rotational flag



Allow QUEUE_FLAG_NONROT to propagate up the device stack if all
underlying devices are non-rotational.  Tools like ureadahead will
schedule IOs differently based on the rotational flag.

With this patch, I see boot time go from 7.75 s to 7.46 s on my device.

v2: last minute edit was to avoid double-negative in
    dm_table_set_restrictions's dm_table_is_nonrot conditional
