This patch adds 'cling' allocation policy.
Currently there are 3 policies: 'contiguous', 'normal', 'anywhere'.
LVM2 tries to apply from left to right until it succeeds allocation
or it failed to allocate with specified policy.
With this patch, policies are applied in the order:
'contiguous', 'cling', 'normal', 'anywhere'.
>From man page:
The contiguous policy requires that
new extents are adjacent to existing extents. If there are sufficient
free extents to satisfy an allocation request but normal doesn't use them,
anywhere will - even if that reduces performance by placing two stripes
on the same physical volume.
'cling' policy requires that new extents are on the same physical
volume with the existing extents.
