[dm-devel] [PATCH] device-mapper snaphot: fix kcopyd destructor



Before removing a snapshot, wait for the completion of any kcopyd jobs
using it.  Without this patch, the snapshot structures get freed while
there could still be kcopyd jobs referencing them, which leads to a
crash.  To see this, all you have to do is create a new snapshot of an
LV, start a large write to the LV and then attempt to remove the
snapshot before the write you issued to the origin has finished.

The patch maintains a count (nr_jobs) of how many outstanding jobs
each kcopyd_client has.

The snapshot destructor first unregisters the snapshot so that no
new kcopyd jobs (created by writes to the origin) will reference 
that particular snapshot.   kcopyd_client_destroy() is now run next
to wait for the completion of any outstanding jobs before the snapshot
exception structures (that those jobs reference) are freed.
