Description Jonathan Earl Brassow 2007-06-01 10:53:22 EDT
From drivers/md/dm-log.h:
         * Mark an area as clean or dirty.  These functions may
         * block, though for performance reasons blocking should
         * be extremely rare (eg, allocating another chunk of
         * memory for some reason).
        void (*mark_region)(struct dirty_log *log, region_t region);
        void (*clear_region)(struct dirty_log *log, region_t region);

These function rarely block, but they could.  Would be a good idea
to move the clear_region call in rh_update_states outside the
spin lock.
