[dm-devel] [PATCH 6/7] dm core: disable interrupt when taking map_lock



This patch disables interrupt when taking map_lock to prevent
needless lockdep warnings in request-based dm.

request-based dm takes map_lock after taking queue_lock with
disabling interrupt:
  spin_lock_irqsave(queue_lock)
  q->request_fn() == dm_request_fn()
    => dm_get_table()
         => read_lock(map_lock)
while queue_lock could be taken in interrupt context.

So lockdep warns that a deadlock can happen:
  write_lock(map_lock)
  <interrupt>
  spin_lock_irqsave(queue_lock)
  q->request_fn() == dm_request_fn()
    => dm_get_table()
         => read_lock(map_lock)

Currently there is no such code path in request-based dm where
q->request_fn() is called from interrupt context, so no such deadlock
happens.
But such warning messages confuse users, so prevent them by disabling
interrupt when taking map_lock.
