Subject[PATCH v4 00/13] snapshot-merge target
The snapshot-merge target allows a snapshot to be merged back into the
snapshot's origin device.

One expected use of snapshot merging is the rollback of a root
filesystem after system upgrades (e.g.: yum update). snapshot-merge
enables "system rollback" support for any filesystem that is using the
associated DM/LVM devices.

* "[PATCH v4 05/13] dm snapshot: add snapshot-merge target" adds further
documentation to: Documentation/device-mapper/snapshot.txt

* All patch headers have been revised/audited for added clarity.

* Both the latest handover (v10) and origin-write patch have been
included in this series.

* Aside from snapshot-merge specific testing these patches have
survived 75+ iterations of lvm2's testsuite without any failures.
The test kernel was 2.6.32-rc8 and lvm2 was 2.0.55 (with udev_sync
enabled and dmeventd disabled).

The snapshot-merge quilt tree is maintained here:

For LVM2 support please see:

Mike Snitzer (3):
dm snapshot: allow live exception store handover between tables
dm exception store: snapshot-merge usage accounting
dm snapshot: merge a linear region of chunks using one large IO

Mikulas Patocka (10):
dm snapshot: rework writing to snapshot origin
dm exception store: add snapshot-merge specific methods
dm snapshot: add snapshot-merge target
dm snapshot: merge target should not allocate new exceptions
dm snapshot: do not allow more than one merging snapshot.
dm snapshot: the merge procedure
dm snapshot: queue writes to an area that is actively being merged
dm snapshot: do not merge a chunk until active writes to it finish
dm snapshot: make exceptions in other snapshots when merging
dm snapshot: redirect accesses to origin if merging snap invalidated
