Subject[PATCH v3 19/22] memstick/r592: Better synchronize debug messages in r592_io kthread
Date
There is an attempt to print debug messages when the kthread is waken
and when it goes into sleep. It does not work well because the spin lock
does not guard all manipulations with the thread state.

I did not find a way how to print a message when the kthread really
goes into sleep. Instead, I added a state variable. It clearly marks
when a series of IO requests is started and finished. It makes sure
that we always have a pair of started/done messages.

The only problem is that it will print these messages also when
the kthread is created and there is no real work. We might want
to use create_kthread() instead of run_kthread(). Then the kthread
will stay stopped until the first request.

Important: This change is only compile tested. I did not find an easy
way how to test it. This is why I was conservative and did not modify
the kthread creation.
