  md: don't allow bitmap file to be added to raid0/linear. (2014-08-08 15:43:20 +1000)

I've nearly isolated another bug - raid6 can sometime get corrupt during
recovery.  Once that is properly understood and tested I'll send it separately.


md updates for 3.17

Most interesting is that md devices (major == 9) with
minor numbers of 512 or more will no longer be created
simply by opening a block device file.  They can only
be created by writing to
The 'auto-create-on-open' semantic is cumbersome and we
need to start moving away from it.

NeilBrown (4):
      md/raid1,raid10: always abort recover on write error.
      md: disable probing for md devices 512 and over.
      md/raid0: check for bitmap compatability when changing raid levels.
      md: don't allow bitmap file to be added to raid0/linear.

Xiao Ni (1):
      md: Recovery speed is wrong
