  dm integrity: whitespace, coding style and dead code cleanup (2019-05-09 16:00:31 -0400)

- Improve DM snapshot target's scalability by using finer grained
  locking.  Requires some list_bl interface improvements.

- Add ability for DM integrity to use a bitmap mode, that tracks regions
  where data and metadata are out of sync, instead of using a journal.

- Improve DM thin provisioning target to not write metadata changes to
  disk if the thin-pool and associated thin devices are merely
  activated but not used.  This avoids metadata corruption due to
  concurrent activation of thin devices across different OS instances
  (e.g. split brain scenarios, which ultimately would be avoided if
  proper device filters were used -- but not having proper filtering has
  proven a very common configuration mistake)

- Fix missing call to path selector type->end_io in DM multipath.  This
  fixes reported performance problems due to inaccurate path selector IO
  accounting causing an imbalance of IO (e.g. avoiding issuing IO to
  particular path due to it seemingly being heavily used).

- Fix bug in DM cache metadata's loading of its discard bitset that
  could lead to all cache blocks being discarded if the very first cache
  block was discarded (thankfully in practice the first cache block is
  generally in use; be it FS superblock, partition table, disk label,

- Add testing-only DM dust target which simulates a device that has
  failing sectors and/or read failures.

- Various small fixes to DM init, DM multipath, DM zoned, and DM crypt.
