  dm cache: fix a lock-inversion (2014-04-04 14:53:05 -0400)

Please pull, thanks.

. Fix dm-cache corruption caused by discard_block_size >

. Fix a lock-inversion detected by LOCKDEP in dm-cache

. Fix a dangling bio bug in the dm-thinp target's process_deferred_bios
  error path

. Fix corruption due to non-atomic transaction commit which allowed a
  metadata superblock to be written before all other metadata was
  successfully written -- this is common to all targets that use the
  persistent-data library's transaction manager (dm-thinp, dm-cache and

. Various small cleanups in the DM core

. Add the dm-era target which is useful for keeping track of which
  blocks were written within a user defined period of time called an
  'era'.  Use cases include tracking changed blocks for backup software,
  and partially invalidating the contents of a cache to restore cache
  coherency after rolling back a vendor snapshot.

. Improve the on-disk layout of multithreaded writes to the dm-thin-pool
  by splitting the pool's deferred bio list to be a per-thin device list
  and then sorting that list using an rb_tree.  The subsequent read
  throughput of the data written via multiple threads improved by ~70%.

. Simplify the multipath target's handling of queuing IO by pushing
  requests back to the request queue rather than queueing the IO

Hannes Reinecke (6):
      dm mpath: do not call pg_init when it is already running
      dm mpath: push back requests instead of queueing
      dm mpath: remove process_queued_ios()
      dm mpath: reduce memory pressure when requeuing
      dm mpath: remove map_io()
      dm-mpath: do not activate failed paths

Heinz Mauelshagen (1):
      dm cache: remove remainder of distinct discard block size

Joe Thornber (5):
      dm: add era target
      dm bitset: only flush the current word if it has been dirtied
      dm transaction manager: fix corruption due to non-atomic transaction commit
      dm: take care to copy the space map roots before locking the superblock
      dm cache: fix a lock-inversion

Jose Castillo (1):
      dm mpath: print more useful warnings in multipath_message()

Mike Snitzer (7):
      dm cache: prevent corruption caused by discard_block_size > cache_block_size
      dm table: add dm_table_run_md_queue_async
      dm mpath: remove extra nesting in map function
      dm thin: fix dangling bio in process_deferred_bios error path
      dm thin: simplify pool_is_congested
      dm thin: use per thin device deferred bio lists
      dm thin: sort the per thin deferred bios using an rb_tree

Mikulas Patocka (3):
      dm: make dm_table_alloc_md_mempools static
      dm: remove dm_get_mapinfo
      dm: stop using bi_private

Monam Agarwal (1):
      dm: use RCU_INIT_POINTER instead of rcu_assign_pointer in __unbind
