Subject[PATCH 3.2 36/87] dm snapshot: fix hung bios when copy error occurs
3.2.77-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka@redhat.com>

commit 385277bfb57faac44e92497104ba542cdd82d5fe upstream.

When there is an error copying a chunk dm-snapshot can incorrectly hold
associated bios indefinitely, resulting in hung IO.

The function copy_callback sets pe->error if there was error copying the
chunk, and then calls complete_exception. complete_exception calls
pending_complete on error, otherwise it calls commit_exception with
commit_callback (and commit_callback calls complete_exception).

The persistent exception store (dm-snap-persistent.c) assumes that calls
to prepare_exception and commit_exception are paired.
persistent_prepare_exception increases ps->pending_count and
persistent_commit_exception decreases it.

If there is a copy error, persistent_prepare_exception is called but
persistent_commit_exception is not. This results in the variable
ps->pending_count never returning to zero and that causes some pending
exceptions (and their associated bios) to be held forever.

Fix this by unconditionally calling commit_exception regardless of
whether the copy was successful. A new "valid" parameter is added to
commit_exception -- when the copy fails this parameter is set to zero so
that the chunk that failed to copy (and all following chunks) is not
recorded in the snapshot store. Also, remove commit_callback now that
it is merely a wrapper around pending_complete.
