On debugging I found out that,"dmsetup suspend <device name>" calls "freeze_bdev()",which locks "bd_mount_mutex" to make sure that no new mounts happen on bdev until thaw_bdev() is called. This "thaw_bdev()" is getting called when we resume the device through "dmsetup resume <device-name>". Hence we have 2 processes,one of which locks "bd_mount_mutex"(dmsetup suspend) and Another(dmsetup resume) unlocks it.
hm, to me this seems quite a fragile construct - even if the mutex-debugging warning is worked around by reverting to a semaphore.

Ingo, what do you feel is fragile about this?  It seems like this is a
reasonable way to go, except that maybe a down_trylock would be good if
a 2nd process tries to freeze while it's already frozen...

Thanks,

-Eric
Ingo, As per the discussion resending the patch with down_trylock.
