dm crypt: use memzero_explicit for on-stack buffer (2014-12-02 10:25:07 -0500)

Please pull, thanks.

- Significant DM thin-provisioning performance improvements to meet
performance requirements that were requested by the Gluster
distributed filesystem. Specifically, dm-thinp now takes care to
aggregate IO that will be issued to the same thinp block before
issuing IO to the underlying devices. This really helps improve
performance on HW RAID6 devices that have a writeback cache because it
avoids RMW in the HW RAID controller.

- Some stable fixes: fix leak in DM bufio if integrity profiles were
enabled, use memzero_explicit in DM crypt to avoid any potential for
information leak, and a DM cache fix to properly mark a cache block
dirty if it was promoted to the cache via the overwrite optimization.

- A few simple DM persistent data library fixes

- DM cache multiqueue policy block promotion improvements.

- DM cache discard improvements that take advantage of range
(multiblock) discard support in the DM bio-prison. This allows for
much more efficient bulk discard processing (e.g. when mkfs.xfs
discards the entire device).

- Some small optimizations in DM core and RCU deference cleanups

- DM core changes to suspend/resume code to introduce the new internal
suspend/resume interface that the DM thin-pool target now uses to
suspend/resume active thin devices when the thin-pool must
suspend/resume. This avoids forcing userspace to track all active
thin volumes in a thin-pool when the thin-pool is suspended for the
purposes of metadata or data space resize.
