Actually, this 00005.patch *is* necessary. dd->bdev->bd_inode->i_size *is* in
bytes, and does need to be shifted to do the above comparison.
I believe we have tracked the problem down to the call to dm_get_device() in
dm-linear.c. It is passing in an incorrect value, which winds up being the
"start" parameter to the check_device_area() function. I've included a patch
at the end of this email which I believe should fix the problem. I have also
checked dm-stripe.c, and it appears to make the call to dm_get_device()
correctly, so no worries there.
