[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm snapshot: fix data corruption

The patch 55494bf2947dccdf2d98b62374fea7365dfead84 broke snapshots. When
loading the list of exceptions, the old code read exception areas one by
one into ps->area and inserted the exceptions into the hash table. The
patch 55494bf2 changed it so that dm-bufio with prefetch is used to load
exceptions. It loads the exceptions correctly, but leaves ps->area
uninitialized. When a new exception is allocated, it is stored in this
uninitialized ps->area location and full ps->area is written to the disk.
This causes metadata corruption.

This patch fixes the bug by copying the last area that was read via
dm-bufio into ps->area.
