[dm-devel] patch to fix locking bug in libmultipath/alias.c



Christophe,

The posix file byte range locks used to provide atomicity for accessing
the entries in the multipath bindings file get released from whenever
__any__ descriptor or FILE structure for that file is closed.  This
patch delays the fclose() for the FILE structures used within
lookup_binding() and rlookup_binding() until there is no more need for
the atomicity.

Without this patch I could fairly easily get two multipath mpath0
entries in /var/lib/multipath/bindings by running 8 concurrent instances
of multipath(8) while with the patch I cannot get this problem to occur.
