Subject[patch 64/69] JFS: Fix race waking up jfsIO kernel thread
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Dave Kleikamp <>

It's possible for a journal I/O request to be added to the log_redrive
queue and the jfsIO thread to be awakened after the thread releases
log_redrive_lock but before it sets its state to TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE.

The jfsIO thread should set the state before giving up the spinlock, so
the waking thread will really wake it.
