Default patches for 2.6.33

Hi

I went through the patches in Alasdair's patchset and tried to sort them
for seriousness. These should be sent immediatelly (before 2.6.33):

dm-raid1-fail-writes-if-errors-are-not-handled-and-log-fails.patch # 76000
- fixes a regression introduced in 2.6.33-rc1
- should be sent to Linus before 2.6.33 goes out
- doesn't need to be applied to -stable

dm-raid1-fix-null-pointer-dereference-in-suspend.patch # 72253
- fixes a serious bug (crash) that existed even in previous kernels
- should be sent before 2.6.33 goes out
- should be sent to -stable

dm-stripe-avoid-divide-by-zero-with-invalid-stripe-count.patch # 76915
dm-snapshot-persistent-annotate-work_queue-as-on-stack.patch # 75065
- minor bugs, but the patches are very simple, so that they can be sent to
Linus now, there is minimal change of breaking something

multipath patches
- let Kiyoshi Ueda decide, I am not familiar with mpath well enough

Hi Alasdair, Mikulas,

Sorry for the late reply.

http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/76618/
- Fixes a serious bug (system stall) of request-based dm.
No bug report yet, but I can reproduce it on my box.
It has been existing since 2.6.31-rc1.
- Should be sent for 2.6.33
- Should be sent to -stable, too

dm-mpath-wait-for-pg_init-completion-when-suspending.patch # 76027
- Fixes a possible serious bug (panic).
But no bug report, I don't have any producer, and
some cosmetic dependencies on other patches.
- No need to send for 2.6.33 nor -stable for now.

Some other patches fix some minor bugs which display unnecessary
I/O errors, but such I/O errors have no serious effect.
So no need to send for 2.6.33 nor -stable.

Thanks,
Kiyoshi Ueda
