[PATCH] drbd: fix throttling on newly created DM backing devices

From: Imre Palik
Date: Wed Sep 03 2014 - 09:03:41 EST

From: "Palik, Imre" <imrep@xxxxxxxxx>

If the drbd backing device is a new device mapper device (e.g., a
dm-linear mapping of an existing block device that contains data), the
counters are initially 0 even though the device contains useful
data. This causes throttling until something accesses the drbd device
or the backing device.

The patch disables throttling, as long as only resync is responsible
for disk activity on a freshly created device.
