	commit 86a54a4802df10d23ccd655e2083e812fe990243

	dm log userspace: add version number to comms
	This patch adds a 'version' field to the 'dm_ulog_request'
	The 'version' field is taken from a portion of the unused
	'padding' field in the 'dm_ulog_request' structure.  This
	was done to avoid changing the size of the structure and
	possibly disrupting backwards compatibility.
	The version number will help notify user-space daemons
	when a change has been made to the kernel/userspace
	log API.
