    Pull device mapper updates from Mike Snitzer:
     "Smaller set of DM changes for this merge.  I've based these changes on
      Jens' for-4.4/reservations branch because the associated DM changes
      required it.
       - Revert a dm-multipath change that caused a regression for
         unprivledged users (e.g. kvm guests) that issued ioctls when a
         multipath device had no available paths.
       - Include Christoph's refactoring of DM's ioctl handling and add
         support for passing through persistent reservations with DM
       - All other changes are very simple cleanups"
