[dm-devel] [PATCH 2/2] dm-multipath: reduce memory pressure during requeuing



When multipath needs to requeue I/O in the block layer
the per-request context shouldn't be allocated, as it will
be freed immediately afterwards anyway.
Avoiding this memory allocation will reduce memory
pressure during requeuing.
