I think you could continue to review this patch set for AUX data splitting.

Since we have concern for the AUX data splitting with snapshot mode,
James and me both have verified the AUX data splitting (this patch
set) with snapshot mode, and the testing result shows this patch set
is reliable.

Regard another patch set for fixing snapshot mode [1], I will send a new
version (drop patch 1/3 and refine for patch 3/3), so you could hold
on for that patch set.

Thanks,
Leo
