I was mistaken, DM enforces that guarantee... ;)

(but block layer will also enforce empty flush for request-based)

But it wasn't clear until Christoph and I looked closer. The point
stands though; we should BUG_ON rather than WARN_ON_ONCE.

I'll send a follow-on patch to help clean this code up a bit more (based
on Christoph's suggestions). Mainly just making the flush paths a bit
more distinct and adding some comments.

Mike
