  dm cache: resolve small nits and improve Documentation (2013-11-12 13:11:09 -0500)

Please pull, thanks.

A set of device-mapper changes for 3.13.

Improve reliability of buffer allocations for dm messages with a small
number of arguments, a couple path group initialization fixes for dm
multipath, a fix for resizing a dm array, various fixes and
optimizations for dm cache, a fix for device mapper's Kconfig menu

Features added include:
- dm crypt support for activating legacy CBC TrueCrypt containers
  (useful for forensics of these old TCRYPT containers)
- reduced dm-cache memory requirements for each block in the cache
- basic support for shrinking a dm-cache's cache (fast) device
- most notably, dm-cache support for managing cache coherency when
  deploying dm-cache with sophisticated origin volumes (that support
  hardware snapshots and/or clustering): these changes come in the form
  of a new passthrough operation mode and a cache block invalidation

Hannes Reinecke (1):
      dm mpath: requeue I/O during pg_init

Heinz Mauelshagen (3):
      dm cache: use cell_defer() boolean argument consistently
      dm cache: log error message if dm_kcopyd_copy() fails
      dm cache: optimize commit_if_needed

Joe Thornber (18):
      dm array: fix bug in growing array
      dm cache policy mq: protect residency method with existing mutex
      dm cache: io destined for the cache device can now serve as tick bios
      dm cache: fix a race condition between queuing new migrations and quiescing for a shutdown
      dm cache: improve efficiency of quiescing flag management
      dm cache policy: remove return from void policy_remove_mapping
      dm cache policy mq: a few small fixes
      dm cache metadata: return bool from __superblock_all_zeroes
      dm space map disk: optimise sm_disk_dec_block
      dm cache policy mq: implement writeback_work() and mq_{set,clear}_dirty()
      dm cache: be much more aggressive about promoting writes to discarded blocks
      dm cache: promotion optimisation for writes
      dm cache: cache shrinking support
      dm cache: add passthrough mode
      dm cache metadata: check the metadata version when reading the superblock
      dm cache policy mq: reduce memory requirements
      dm cache: add remove_cblock method to policy interface
      dm cache: add cache block invalidation support

Mike Snitzer (3):
      dm table: print error on preresume failure
      MAINTAINERS: add reference to device-mapper's linux-dm.git tree
      dm cache: resolve small nits and improve Documentation

Mikulas Patocka (4):
      dm: allocate buffer for messages with small number of arguments using GFP_NOIO
      dm cache: return -EINVAL if the user specifies unknown cache policy
      dm: allow remove to be deferred
      dm: fix Kconfig menu indentation

Milan Broz (2):
      dm crypt: properly handle extra key string in initialization
      dm crypt: add TCW IV mode for old CBC TCRYPT containers

Shiva Krishna Merla (1):
      dm mpath: fix race condition between multipath_dtr and pg_init_done
