    dm bufio: initialize read-only module parameters · d468a287

    commit 4cb57ab4a2e61978f3a9b7d4f53988f30d61c27f upstream.
    
    Some module parameters in dm-bufio are read-only. These parameters
    inform the user about memory consumption. They are not supposed to be
    changed by the user.
    
    However, despite being read-only, these parameters can be set on
    modprobe or insmod command line, for example:
    modprobe dm-bufio current_allocated_bytes=12345
    
    The kernel doesn't expect that these variables can be non-zero at module
    initialization and if the user sets them, it results in BUG.
    
    This patch initializes the variables in the module init routine, so that
    user-supplied values are ignored.
