Subject[PATCH v3 3/5] dm-writecache: expand pmem_reinit for struct dm_writecache
Date
From: Huaisheng Ye <yehs1@lenovo.com>

When use persistent memory as cache data device, sometimes
the super block of pmem has messy data stored in it. That would
have risk to lead fn ctr failed to work due to invalid magic or
version.

Here we expand pmem_reinit to optional parameters in order to solve
this issue. When user gets pmem device, which has unrelated data,
as cache device, he should use paramenter 'reinit' to avoid s.magic
and s.version don't equal to NULL or correct
MEMORY_SUPERBLOCK_MAGIC/VERSION.
