[dm-devel] [patch] dm-raid1.c fix a race bug in __rh_alloc()



after write_unlock_irq and just before read_lock, there's a small window which enables a race causing deletion of the region struct in function rh_update_states(). then in rh_dec(), the __rh_lookup() will return null, causing kernel panic.
