Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH] a deadlock bug in the kernel-side device mapper code

Found another place where the lock is not held correctly. This is an
update to my previous patch [dmf_freeing_lock.patch]

Description:

There are places where the code checks for DMF_FREEING bit flag and
conditionally calls dm_get(). This should be done under _minor_lock,
otherwise there is no point in checking for the bit flag.
