[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm: dec_pending() needs locking to save error value



Hi Alasdair,

While implementing the barrier support patch for request-based dm,
I found a possible bug in bio-based dm.

In the patch posted here:
    http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/48189/
I added 'barrier_error_lock' to struct mapped_device to save error
values from multiple barrier I/Os safely like below:
	if (error) {
		spin_lock_irqsave(&md->barrier_error_lock, flags);
		if (!md->barrier_error || error == -EOPNOTSUPP ||
		    (md->barrier_error != -EOPNOTSUPP &&
		     error == DM_ENDIO_REQUEUE))
			md->barrier_error = error;
		spin_unlock_irqrestore(&md->barrier_error_lock, flags);
	}

On the other hand, bio-based dm has been doing the same thing
in dec_pending() without any lock:
        if (error && !(io->error > 0 && __noflush_suspending(md)))
                io->error = error;

Though I have never experienced actual problem without locking and
just found this during code inspection, I believe it needs locking
here, too.

This patch adds the locking.
I've done compile, boot and basic I/O testings.
