Re: [dm-devel] [BUGFIX] [PATCH] freeze_bdev: don't deactivate successfully frozen MS_RDONLY sb

Thanks Thomas and Christoph for testing and review.
I removed 'smp_wmb()' before up_write from the previous patch,
since up_write() should have necessary ordering constraints.
(I.e. the change of s_frozen is visible to others after up_write)
I'm quite sure the change is harmless but if you are uncomfortable
with Tested-by/Reviewed-by on the modified patch, please remove them.

I've just verified that this patch works as intended on both 2.6.32 and 2.6.33-rc6, so for me it's still OK.

If MS_RDONLY, freeze_bdev should just up_write(s_umount) instead of
Also, keep sb->s_frozen consistent so that remount can check the frozen state.

Otherwise a crash reported here can happen:

This patch should be applied for 2.6.32 stable series, too.
