Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH v2 for-3.14] dm cache: add block sizes and total cache blocks to status output



I know I'm pushing my luck...

Is it too late to ask for just one more thing?  Would you also consider printing the policy name in the status (INFO)?
  <policy_name> <#policy args> <policy args>

This is especially useful when you pass in "default" in the CTR, because you cannot get this value from anywhere... right?
