Subject[PATCH 3.18 23/24] scsi: sg: reset res_in_use after unlinking reserved array
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Hannes Reinecke <hare@suse.de>

commit e791ce27c3f6a1d3c746fd6a8f8e36c9540ec6f9 upstream.

Once the reserved page array is unused we can reset the 'res_in_use'
state; here we can do a lazy update without holding the mutex as we only
need to check against concurrent access, not concurrent release.

[mkp: checkpatch]
