[dm-devel] [PATCH 1/3] dm: introduce split_discard_requests



dm: introduce split_discard_requests

This patch introduces a new variable split_discard_requests. It can be
set by targets, when it is set, discard requests are split on max_io_len
boundary.

When split_discard_requests is not set, discard requests are split on
target boundary, as it used to be before this patch.
