I am with Taka here. The normal policy should be the default and it
should do the following for the mirroredlog without introducing a new
policy.

Requirement: Number of allocatable PV's should be at least the number of
             mirror legs
Allocation: Allocate images on different PVs. Allocate logs on remaining
            PVs in a round robin fashion. If there are more PV's, we
	    will not have to share L* and M* at all.

It would be different for disklog though:
Requirement: Number of allocatable PV's should be at least one more than
             the number of mirror legs.
Allocation: Just use round-robin sequence


Thanks, Malahal.
