    Subject[PATCH][RFC] dm: Do not open log and cow device read-write for read-only mappings

    > (so the 2) issue here
    I am not sure if this is complete fix... note that:
    - what happens during mirror resync and read-only log?
    - for COW, it there situation we need to update header in read-oly mode? (invalidated snap?)
