[PATCH] device-mapper log bitset: fix endian
Clean up the code responsible for the on-disk mirror logs by using the set_le_bit test_le_bit functions of ext2. That makes the BE machines keep the bitmap internally in LE order - it does mean you can't use any other type of operations on the bitmap words but that looks to be OK in this instance. The efficiency tradeoff is very minimal as you would expect for something that ext2 uses. This allows us to remove bits_to_core(), bits_to_disk() and log->disk_bits. Also increment the mirror log disk version transparently to avoid sharing with older kernels that suffered from the 64-bit BE bug.
