I'm not sure why things are not working for dm-thinp. Presumably Kent's
code would split the discard at a granularity boundary so why would that
cause problems for dm?

In looking at this I just found out that we'll corrupt data on certain
SCSI configs with the granularity enforcement in place. I'll have to
conjure up a fix for that...
