[dm-devel] [PATCH] DM RAID: Clean-up handling of 'rebuild' device requests

dm-raid: Change the way the 'rebuild' parameter is processed.

1) We already allowed the rebuild flag to clear the superblock area for a
   device.  There is no reason to shame the user if they didn't clear the
   superblock area ahead of time.  Change the message to simply print-out
   that it is clearing the superblock for the purpose of a rebuild.
2) Set the 'FirstUse' flag in 'super_load' vs 'super_init_validation'.  This
   allows the devices that had 'rebuild' set to be processed like a new device.
3) Since the rebuild devices are processed like new devices, the MD_CHANGE_DEVS
   flag also gets set on the MD device.  This was a necessary missing action
   that forces the new superblock to be written when the array is instantiated.
