Subject[PATCH] md: fix a warning caused by a race between concurrent md_ioctl()s
Syzkaller reports a warning as belows.

This is caused by a race between two concurrenct md_ioctl()s closing
the array.
CPU1 (md_ioctl()) CPU2 (md_ioctl())
------ ------
set_bit(MD_CLOSING, &mddev->flags);
did_set_md_closing = true;
clear_bit(MD_CLOSING, &mddev->flags);

Fix the warning by returning immediately if the MD_CLOSING bit is set
in &mddev->flags which indicates that the array is being closed.

Fixes: 065e519e71b2 ("md: MD_CLOSING needs to be cleared after called md_set_readonly or do_md_stop")
