Subject[66/71] cdrom: always check_disk_change() on open
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Tejun Heo <>

commit bf2253a6f00e8fea5b026e471e9f0d0a1b3621f2 upstream.

cdrom_open() called check_disk_change() after the rest of open path
succeeded which leads to the following bizarre behavior.

* After media change, if the device opened without O_NONBLOCK,
open_for_data() naturally fails with -ENOMEDIA and
check_disk_change() is never called. The media is known to be gone
and the open failure makes it obvious to the userland but device
invalidation never happens.

* But if the device is opened with O_NONBLOCK, all the checks are
bypassed and cdrom_open() doesn't notice that the media is not there
and check_disk_change() is called and invalidation happens.

There's nothing to be gained by avoiding calling check_disk_change()
on open failure. Common cases end up calling check_disk_change()
anyway. All we get is inconsistent behavior.

Fix it by moving check_disk_change() invocation to the top of
cdrom_open() so that it always gets called regardless of how the rest
of open proceeds.

Stable: 2.6.38
