[dm-devel] [PATCH 2/3] dm: release _hash_lock when removing device in remove_all



This patch changes dm_hash_remove_all() to release _hash_lock when
removing a device.  After removing the device, dm_hash_remove_all()
takes _hash_lock and searches the hash from scratch again.

This patch is a preparation for the next patch, which changes device
deletion code to wait for md reference to be 0.  Without this patch,
the wait in the next patch may cause AB-BA deadlock:

    <in the md deletion code>
      <wait for md->holders to be 0>
