relax. I explained it already but you are defensive about your code.
flash-cache works, period. And I may be wrong but it is GPL'd. If perf
is an issue then atleast let everyone know how it can be improved
rather than saying my way or the highway. aren't you saying in your
patches - support for thin prov etc. but if dm provides it then why
are you duplicating code?

Others might want to contribute to it and not just consume it. This
ain't your local sandbox. So it's quite common to get such questions
when you are trying to add new functionality. May be I missed some of
your emails. If so point me to them.
