dm flakey: add drop_writes

Add 'drop_writes' option to drop writes silently while the
device is 'down'.  Reads are not touched.

dm-flakey
=========
This target is the same as the linear target except that it returns I/O
errors periodically. It's been found useful in simulating failing
devices for testing purposes.
This target is the same as the linear target except that it exhibits
unreliable behaviour periodically. It's been found useful in simulating
failing devices for testing purposes.
Starting from the time the table is loaded, the device is available for
<up interval> seconds, then returns errors for <down interval> seconds,
and then this cycle repeats.
<up interval> seconds, then exhibits unreliable behaviour for <down
interval> seconds, and then this cycle repeats.
Parameters: <dev path> <offset> <up interval> <down interval>
Also, consider using this in combination with the dm-delay target too,
which can delay reads and writes and/or send them to different
underlying devices.
Table parameters
----------------
<dev path> <offset> <up interval> <down interval> \
[<num_features> [<feature arguments>]]
Mandatory parameters:
<dev path>: Full pathname to the underlying block-device, or a
"major:minor" device-number.
<offset>: Starting sector within the device.
<up interval>: Number of seconds device is available.
<down interval>: Number of seconds device returns errors.
Optional feature parameters:
If no feature parameters are present, during the periods of
unreliability, all I/O returns errors.
drop_writes:
All write I/O is silently ignored.
Read I/O is handled correctly.
