Hi Jens,

Neil/Mike/Martin have acked/reviewed PATCH 1.
Now it's ready. Could you please apply this series?

Please note that, for discard, we cap the size at 2G.
We'll change it to UINT_MAX after the splitting code in
DM thinp is rewritten.

- rebase on top of 4.2-rc6+
- fix discard/write_same 32bit bi_size overflow issue
- add ACKs/Review from Mike/Christoph/Martin/Steven

Why did you rebase it on top of 4.2-rc6+? If you had kept it at 4.2-rc1,
it would have applied to for-4.3/core a lot more easily. Care to respin
on top of that?

Because commit bd4aaf8 "dm: fix dm_merge_bvec regression on 32 bit
systems" in 4.2-rc6 conflicted with PATCH 6.

Sure, I can respin on top of 4.2-rc1.

Should I re-post new series to mail list or just update my tree?

Just repost to me, if you don't want to spam the list again.
