The following patch prevents people changing the top-level discard
flag when reloading a pool target.

I'll push this test in a bit (dm-cache changes holding things up).

  # we don't allow people to change their minds about top level                                                                                                    
  # discard support.                                                                                                                                               
  def test_change_discard_with_reload_fails
    with_standard_pool(@size, :discard => true) do |pool|
      assert_raise(ExitError) do
        table = Table.new(ThinPool.new(@size, @metadata_dev, @data_dev,
                                       @data_block_size, @low_water_mark, false, false, false))
        pool.load(table)
      end
    end

    with_standard_pool(@size, :discard => false) do |pool|
      assert_raise(ExitError) do
        table = Table.new(ThinPool.new(@size, @metadata_dev, @data_dev,
                                       @data_block_size, @low_water_mark, false, true, false))
        pool.load(table)
      end
    end
  end
