dm stripe: fix regression in stripe_width calculation
Fix a regression in the calculation of the stripe_width in the dm stripe target which led to incorrect processing of device limits. The stripe_width is the stripe device length divided by the number of stripes. The group of commits in the range f14fa69 ("dm stripe: fix size test") to eb850de ("dm stripe: support for non power of 2 chunksize") interfered with each other (a merging error) and led to the stripe_width being set incorrectly to the stripe device length divided by chunk_size * stripe_count. For example, a stripe device's table with: 0 33553920 striped 3 512 ... should result in a stripe_width of 11184640 (33553920 / 3), but due to the bug it was getting set to 21845 (33553920 / (512 * 3)). The impact of this bug is that device topologies that previously worked fine with the stripe target are no longer considered valid. In particular, there is a higher risk of seeing this issue if one of the stripe devices has a 4K logical block size. Resulting in an error message like this: "device-mapper: table: 253:4: len=21845 not aligned to h/w logical block size 4096 of dm-1" The fix is to swap the order of the divisions and to use a temporary variable for the second one, so that width retains the intended value.
