[dm-devel] [PATCH] rqdm: remove superfluous irq disablement

Hi Alasdair,

This patch changes spin_lock_irq() to spin_lock() in dm_request_fn().
This patch is just a clean-up and no functional change.
Made for 2.6.34-rc1.
Please review and apply.

The spin_lock_irq() was leftover from the early request-based dm code,
where map_request() used to enable interrupts.
Since current map_request() never enable interrupts, we can change it
to spin_lock() so to match with the prior spin_unlock().

Auditing through the dm and block-layer code called from
map_request(), I confirmed all functions save/restore interrupt
status, so no function returning with interrupts enabled.
Also I haven't observed any problem on my test environment which
uses scsi and lpfc driver after heavy I/O testing with occasional
path down/up.

Added BUG_ON() to detect breakage in future.
