Ohh.. as you already know this patch break dm-layer. Sorry.
This is because dm->merge may return more than requested. So correct
check must test against less what requested. Correct patch attached.

Subject: [PATCH] blkdev: fix merge_bvec_fn return value checks v2
merge_bvec_fn() returns bvec->bv_len on success. So we have to check
against this value. But in case of fs_optimization merge we compare
with wrong value. This patch must be included in
b428cd6da7e6559aca69aa2e3a526037d3f20403
But accidentally i've forgot to add this in the initial patch.
To make things straight let's replace all such checks.
In fact this makes code easy to understand.
