[PATCH] md: remove inappropriate limits in md/bitmap configuration.

The kernel should not be imposing these policy limits: The time between
bitmap updates should certainly be allowed to be more than 15 seconds, and
if someone wants a bitmap chunk size in excess of 4MB, the kernel isn't the
place to stop them.
