Subject[PULL REQUEST] md updates for 2.6.33 merge window


here is my offering for 2.6.33, to bring more goodness (and less
badness?) to md/RAID.

Probably the most significant thing is that we now support barriers
on all raid levels, so I expect to hear complaints that RAID5 just
got slower :-(

There are also some changes to write-intent-bitmap handling so that
the bitmaps can be inspected and manipulated through sysfs.

and it is possible to convert a 2-disk RAID5 to RAID1 (so if you
converted a RAID1 to RAID5 by mistake, you can now convert it back).

... as well as the usual mix of minor improvements and little bug


The following changes since commit 3067e02f8f3ae2f3f02ba76400d03b8bcb4942b0:
