  dm: add reserved_bio_based_ios module parameter (2013-09-23 10:42:24 -0400)

Please pull, thanks.

A set of device-mapper fixes for 3.12.

A few fixes for dm-snapshot, a 32 bit fix for dm-stats, a couple error
handling fixes for dm-multipath.  A fix for the thin provisioning target
to not expose non-zero discard limits if discards are disabled.

Lastly, add two DM module parameters which allow users to tune the
emergency memory reserves that DM mainatins per device -- this helps fix
a long-standing issue for dm-multipath.  The conservative default
reserve for request-based dm-multipath devices (256) has proven
problematic for users with many multipathed SCSI devices but relatively
little memory.  To responsibly select a smaller value users should use
the new nr_bios tracepoint info (via commit 75afb352 "block: Add nr_bios
to block_rq_remap tracepoint") to determine the peak number of bios
their workloads create.
