dm thin: switch to read-only mode if metadata space is exhausted



Switch the thin pool to read-only mode in alloc_data_block() if
dm_pool_alloc_data_block() fails because the pool's metadata space is
exhausted.

Differentiate between data and metadata space in messages about no
free space available.

This issue was noticed with the device-mapper-test-suite using:
dmtest run --suite thin-provisioning -n /exhausting_metadata_space_causes_fail_mode/

The quantity of errors logged in this case must be reduced.

before patch:

device-mapper: thin: 253:4: reached low water mark for metadata device: sending event.
device-mapper: space map metadata: unable to allocate new metadata block
device-mapper: space map common: dm_tm_shadow_block() failed

device-mapper: space map metadata: unable to allocate new metadata block
device-mapper: thin: 253:4: no free metadata space available.
