Out of curiosity, how much of the stack does this end up eating?  My root
filesystem is already ext4 on an LVM partition that's on a LUKS/dm-crypt
partition on a hard drive, and I'm sure somebody out there will have used xfs
instead - and then exported it via NFS or something. Are we going to get weird
stack overflows if people throw dm-verity into this sort of mix?

Probably will need it to be merged, unless you set up an auto-reply that says
"Patch rejected, 'verity' is *not* a typo for 'verify'" ;)

I'll hopefully have some more comments over the weekend if I get some spare
cycles.
