Looks like a real deadlock here. It seems to me #2 is the easiest to
break.

static int md_open(struct inode *inode, struct file *file)
{
/*
* Succeed if we can lock the mddev, which confirms that
* it isn't being stopped right now.
*/
mddev_t *mddev = inode->i_bdev->bd_disk->private_data;
int err;
if ((err = mddev_lock(mddev)))
goto out;
err = 0;
mddev_get(mddev);
mddev_unlock(mddev);

check_disk_change(inode->i_bdev);
out:
return err;
}
mddev_get() is a simple atomic_inc(), and I fail to see how waiting for
the lock makes any difference.
