[dm-devel] [git pull] 3.8 device-mapper updates



Please pull from:
 
  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/agk/linux-dm tags/dm-3.8-fixes
 
to get the following device-mapper updates:

----------------------------------------------------------------
Miscellaneous device-mapper fixes, cleanups and performance improvements.

Of particular note:
- Disable broken WRITE SAME support in all targets except linear and striped.
  Use it when kcopyd is zeroing blocks.
- Remove several mempools from targets by moving the data into the bio's new
  front_pad area(which dm calls 'per_bio_data').
- Fix a race in thin provisioning if discards are misused.
- Prevent userspace from interfering with the ioctl parameters and
  use kmalloc for the data buffer if it's small instead of vmalloc.
- Throttle some annoying error messages when I/O fails.

----------------------------------------------------------------
