Here are various fixes for dm_thin-add-pool-target-flags-to-control-discard.patch

o wire up 'discard_passdown' so that it does control whether or not the
  discard is passed to the pool's underlying data device
o disallow disabling discards if a pool was already configured with
  discards enabled (the default)
  - justification is inlined in the code
  - required pool_ctr knowing whether pool was created or not; so added
    'created' flag to __pool_find()
o if 'discard_passdown' is enabled (the default) verify that the pool's
  data device supports discards; if not warn and disable discard_passdown
o the pool device's discard support should _not_ be limited by whether
  'discard_passdown' is enabled or not.
