[dm-devel] [PATCH] device-mapper: dm-mpath.c/dm_end_io might dead-lock



We had a problem with the multipath target which seems to be a locking
problem. The following patch fixed the problem for us by replacing the
spin_lock calls by the _irqsave/_irqrestore counterparts.
Alasdair, is that fix acceptable? If yes, could you please include it into
the kernel source?
