Subject[75/85] md: check ->hot_remove_disk when removing disk
2.6.33-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Namhyung Kim <>

commit 01393f3d5836b7d62e925e6f4658a7eb22b83a11 upstream.

Check pers->hot_remove_disk instead of pers->hot_add_disk in slot_store()
during disk removal. The linear personality only has ->hot_add_disk and
no ->hot_remove_disk, so that removing disk in the array resulted to
following kernel bug:

$ sudo mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=linear --raid-devices=4 /dev/loop[0-3]
$ echo none | sudo tee /sys/block/md0/md/dev-loop2/slot
