SubjectRe: 3.10: discard/trim support on md-raid1?
From
Neil, I've tryed to look around commit logs but failed to find commit
where discard/trim were added.
I was looking via
http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git/log/drivers/md?id=9f2a940965286754f3a34d5737c3097c05db8725&qt=grep&q=discard+support
, tryed just "discard" without support - found commits about dm, not
md, though.

Can you shed some light here? Thanks in advance.

(resent in plaintext mode, please reply to this one)
