3.11.10.2 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Mike Snitzer <snitzer@redhat.com>

commit f62b6b8f498658a9d537c7d380e9966f15e1b2a1 upstream.

Commit 2fc48021f4afdd109b9e52b6eef5db89ca80bac7 ("dm persistent
metadata: add space map threshold callback") introduced a regression
to the metadata block allocation path that resulted in errors being
ignored.  This regression was uncovered by running the following
device-mapper-test-suite test:
dmtest run --suite thin-provisioning -n /exhausting_metadata_space_causes_fail_mode/

The ignored error codes in sm_metadata_new_block() could crash the
kernel through use of either the dm-thin or dm-cache targets, e.g.:

device-mapper: thin: 253:4: reached low water mark for metadata device: sending event.
device-mapper: space map metadata: unable to allocate new metadata block
general protection fault: 0000 [#1] SMP
