[dm-devel] [git pull] device-mapper updates for 3.9



Please pull from:

  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/agk/linux-dm tags/dm-3.9-changes

to get the following device-mapper updates for 3.9.

Thanks,
Alasdair

----------------------------------------------------------------
The main addition here is a long-desired target framework to allow
an SSD to be used as a cache in front of a slower device.  Cache
tuning is delegated to interchangeable policy modules so these can
be developed independently of the mechanics needed to shuffle the
data around.

Other than that, kcopyd users acquire a throttling parameter, ioctl
buffer usage gets streamlined, more mempool reliance is reduced
and there are a few other bug fixes and tidy-ups.
