I've sent the current version that I have. I fixed the bugs that were
reported here (missing DAX, dm_bufio_client_create, __branch_check__
OK, but a monolithic dm-writecache.c is no longer useful to me. I can
drop Arnd's gcc warning fix (with the idea that Ingo or Steve will take
your __branch_check__ patch). Not sure what the dm_bufio_client_create
fix is... must've missed a report about that.
ANyway, point is we're on too a different phase of dm-writecache.c's
development. I've picked it up and am trying to get it ready for the
4.18 merge window (likely opening Sunday). Therefore it needs to be in
a git tree, and incremental changes overlayed. I cannot be rebasing at
this late stage in the 4.18 development window.
