[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm: do not replace bioset for request-based dm



This patch fixes a regression introduced in v3.8, which causes oops
like this when dm-multipath is used:

The regression was introduced by the change
c0820cf5 "dm: introduce per_bio_data", where dm started to replace
bioset during table replacement.
For bio-based dm, it is good because clone bios do not exist during the
table replacement.
For request-based dm, however, (not-yet-mapped) clone bios may stay in
request queue and survive during the table replacement.
So freeing the old bioset could cause the oops in bio_put().

Since the size of front_pad may change only with bio-based dm,
it is not necessary to replace bioset for request-based dm.
