[dm-devel] [PATCH 1/3] dm: prevent access to md being deleted



This patch prevents access to mapped_device which is being deleted.

Currently, even after a mapped_device has been removed from the hash,
it could be accessed through idr_find() using minor number.
That could cause a race and NULL pointer reference below:
  CPU0                          CPU1
  ------------------------------------------------------------------
  dev_remove(param)
    down_write(_hash_lock)
    dm_lock_for_deletion(md)
      spin_lock(_minor_lock)
      set_bit(DMF_DELETING)
      spin_unlock(_minor_lock)
    __hash_remove(hc)
    up_write(_hash_lock)
                                dev_status(param)
                                  md = find_device(param)
                                         down_read(_hash_lock)
                                         __find_device_hash_cell(param)
                                           dm_get_md(param->dev)
                                             md = dm_find_md(dev)
                                                    spin_lock(_minor_lock)
                                                    md = idr_find(MINOR(dev))
                                                    spin_unlock(_minor_lock)
    dm_put(md)
      free_dev(md)
                                             dm_get(md)
                                         up_read(_hash_lock)
                                  __dev_status(md, param)
                                  dm_put(md)

This patch fixes such problems.
