If there would be just 1 vg read for 7200 activate call - obviously I'd not
need to play with this dm_pool locking :)

So there is 7200 vg reads - which will use this one locked pool with my patch set:

To give some time info here
(using my unoptimized gcc debug build on C2D 2.2GHz - but with few more
patches applied than current upstream)

Deactivate 7200LV   (7200 already active)

Deactivate 7200LV (non active)
real	0m2.121s
user	0m1.083s
sys	0m1.032s

Activate 7200  (non active)
