  dm thin: fix Documentation for held metadata root feature (2014-03-06 14:23:35 -0500)

Please pull.


A dm-cache memory allocation failure fix, fix DM's Kconfig identation, a
dm-snapshot metadata corruption fix for bug introduced in 3.14-rc1, and
last but not least: more extensive fixes than ideal for dm-thinp's data
resize capability (which has had growing pain much like we've seen from
-ENOSPC handling of filesystems that mature).  The end result is dm-thinp
now handles metadata operation failure and no data space error
conditions much better than before.
