Sorry about this, it's an overly verbose sanity check that I put in
when we were having problems with xfs writing misaligned blocks.  I've
knocked it out of the latest bitkeeper repository:

bk://device-mapper.bkbits.net/2.4-stable

cvs will get updated at some point.

Alternatively just knock out this if statement from dm.c:

        /*
         * Sanity checks.
         */
        if (bh->b_size > block_size)
                DMERR("request is larger than block size "
                      "b_size (%d), block size (%d)",
                      bh->b_size, block_size);


If you are using xfs please be aware that you will need to use the new
journal log format to avoid misalignment problems (search this list
for previous posts).
