Subject[PATCH 3.19 61/75] dm thin: fix to consistently zero-fill reads to unprovisioned blocks
Date
3.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Joe Thornber <ejt@redhat.com>

commit 5f027a3bf184d1d36e68745f7cd3718a8b879cc0 upstream.

It was always intended that a read to an unprovisioned block will return
zeroes regardless of whether the pool is in read-only or read-write
mode. thin_bio_map() was inconsistent with its handling of such reads
when the pool is in read-only mode, it now properly zero-fills the bios
it returns in response to unprovisioned block reads.

Eliminate thin_bio_map()'s special read-only mode handling of -ENODATA
and just allow the IO to be deferred to the worker which will result in
pool->process_bio() handling the IO (which already properly zero-fills
reads to unprovisioned blocks).
