Subject[050/114] dm: prevent access to md being deleted
2.6.35-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Kiyoshi Ueda <k-ueda@ct.jp.nec.com>

commit abdc568b0540bec6d3e0afebac496adef1189b77 upstream.

This patch prevents access to mapped_device which is being deleted.

Currently, even after a mapped_device has been removed from the hash,
it could be accessed through idr_find() using minor number.
That could cause a race and NULL pointer reference below:
CPU0 CPU1
------------------------------------------------------------------
dev_remove(param)
down_write(_hash_lock)
dm_lock_for_deletion(md)
spin_lock(_minor_lock)
set_bit(DMF_DELETING)
spin_unlock(_minor_lock)
__hash_remove(hc)
up_write(_hash_lock)
dev_status(param)
md = find_device(param)
down_read(_hash_lock)
__find_device_hash_cell(param)
dm_get_md(param->dev)
md = dm_find_md(dev)
spin_lock(_minor_lock)
md = idr_find(MINOR(dev))
spin_unlock(_minor_lock)
dm_put(md)
free_dev(md)
dm_get(md)
up_read(_hash_lock)
__dev_status(md, param)
dm_put(md)
This patch fixes such problems.
