[dm-devel] [PATCH UPDATED 1/5] mtd: fix bdev exclusive open bugs in block2mtd::add_device()



There are two bdev exclusive open bugs.

* open_bdev_exclusive() must not be called with NULL holder.  Use dev
  as the holder.

* open_by_devnum() doesn't open the bdev exclusively but
  block2mtd_free_device() always assumes it.  Explicitly claim the
  bdev.

The latter is rather clumsy but will be simplified with future
blkdev_get/put() cleanups.

- Updated to use local variable @mode to cache FMODE_* masks as
  suggested by Artem Bityutskiy.

This change will cause two conflicts in the series.  I'm not reposting
them now as they're mostly trivial.  Git tree is fully updated.

Jens, please let me know when/if you want the full series reposted.

Thanks.
