parentmd: give userspace control over removing failed devices when external metdata in use (diff)
md: allow a maximum extent to be set for resyncing
This allows userspace to control resync/reshape progress and synchronise it with other activities, such as shared access in a SAN, or backing up critical sections during a tricky reshape. Writing a number of sectors (which must be a multiple of the chunk size if such is meaningful) causes a resync to pause when it gets to that point.
