struct mapped_device has no business in this file.  You should move
this function to dm.c, and provide accessor fns in dm-table.c.

Shouldn't this be calling your bdi_*_congested function rather than
assuming it is a real device under dm ? (often not true).

I'm also very slightly worried that or'ing together the congestion
results for all the seperate devices isn't always the right thing.
These devices include anything that the targets are using, exception
stores for snapshots, logs for mirror, all paths for multipath (or'ing
is most likely to be wrong for multipath).
