[linux-lvm] [RFC] Reverting "bd_mount_mutex" to "bd_mount_sem"



Hi all
When I was executing "dmsetup resume <device-name>" command,I got the error shown below. Which basically tells that, "bd_mount_mutex" in thaw_bdev() is not locked by "dmsetup resume" command and hence it is not allowing it to unlock also.
=========================================================
Badness in debug_mutex_unlock at kernel/mutex-debug.c:80

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.

Since this is not allowed in mutex,I reverted back to bd_mount_sem(semaphore),It worked for me.

 So  need your comments for changing "bd_mount_mutex" to "bd_mount_sem".
This is the patch,which I have used.
