  dm array: fix a reference counting bug in shadow_ablock (2013-12-13 14:22:10 -0500)

Please pull, thanks.

A set of device-mapper fixes for 3.13.

A fix for possible memory corruption during DM table load, fix a
possible leak of snapshot space in case of a crash, fix a possible
deadlock due to a shared workqueue in the delay target, fix to
initialize read-only module parameters that are used to export metrics
for dm stats and dm bufio.

Quite a few stable fixes were identified for both the thin-provisioning
and caching targets as a result of increased regression testing using
the device-mapper-test-suite (dmts).  The most notable of these are the
reference counting fixes for the space map btree that is used by the
dm-array interface -- without these the dm-cache metadata will leak,
resulting in dm-cache devices running out of metadata blocks.  Also,
some important fixes related to the thin-provisioning target's
transition to read-only mode on error.

Joe Thornber (7):
      dm thin: switch to read only mode if a mapping insert fails
      dm thin: always fallback the pool mode if commit fails
      dm thin: re-establish read-only state when switching to fail mode
      dm thin: allow pool in read-only mode to transition to read-write mode
      dm cache policy mq: fix promotions to occur as expected
      dm space map: disallow decrementing a reference count below zero
      dm array: fix a reference counting bug in shadow_ablock

Mike Snitzer (3):
      dm space map metadata: return on failure in sm_metadata_new_block
      dm thin: switch to read-only mode if metadata space is exhausted
      dm cache: update Documentation for invalidate_cblocks's range syntax

Mikulas Patocka (5):
      dm delay: fix a possible deadlock due to shared workqueue
      dm snapshot: avoid snapshot space leak on crash
      dm table: fail dm_table_create on dm_round_up overflow
      dm bufio: initialize read-only module parameters
      dm stats: initialize read-only module parameter

Vincent Pelletier (1):
      dm cache: actually resize cache
