Subject[patch 37/37] md: fix raid5 repair operations
2.6.25-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@intel.com>
commit c8894419acf5e56851de9741c5047bebd78acd1f upstream
Date: Mon, 12 May 2008 14:02:12 -0700
Subject: [patch 37/37] md: fix raid5 'repair' operations

commit bd2ab67030e9116f1e4aae1289220255412b37fd "md: close a livelock window
in handle_parity_checks5" introduced a bug in handling 'repair' operations.
After a repair operation completes we clear the state bits tracking this
operation. However, they are cleared too early and this results in the code
deciding to re-run the parity check operation. Since we have done the repair
in memory the second check does not find a mismatch and thus does not do a
writeback.

Test results:
$ echo repair > /sys/block/md0/md/sync_action
$ cat /sys/block/md0/md/mismatch_cnt
51072
$ echo repair > /sys/block/md0/md/sync_action
$ cat /sys/block/md0/md/mismatch_cnt
0
(also fix incorrect indentation)
