Right.

Good data point.  This is the second request-based DM report I've seen
now with 3.0 (first was with fedora on btrfs and request-based DM).

Will look closer but it should be noted that DM didn't change
significantly in 3.0.  So it is likely a lingering oversight from the
block changes introduced for onstack plugging (from 2.6.39) or some
other change.
