Subject[PATCH 2.6.19 5/5] fs: freeze_bdev with semaphore not mutex
From: Srinivasa Ds <srinivasa@in.ibm.com>

On debugging I found out that,"dmsetup suspend <device name>" calls
"freeze_bdev()",which locks "bd_mount_mutex" to make sure that no new mounts
happen on bdev until thaw_bdev() is called. This "thaw_bdev()" is getting
called when we resume the device through "dmsetup resume <device-name>".
Hence we have 2 processes,one of which locks "bd_mount_mutex"(dmsetup
suspend) and another(dmsetup resume) unlocks it.
