[dm-devel] Crash in dm_done()

Hi all,

I'm trying to hunt down a mysterious crash:

r11 is struct dm_rq_target_io *tio = clone->end_io_data;
r1 is tio->ti (ie struct dm_target), which is invalid.
r2 is tio->ti->type, likewise.

Apparently the table got replaced between map_io() and dm_done(),
causing this invalid pointer.
While we do hold a reference on the mapped_device in map_request(),
we only take a _single_ reference to the table in dm_request_fn(),
which is dropped again at the end.
And as the table holds the pointer to the targets, they'll be
invalidated upon table swapping, causing dm_done() accessing an
invalid pointer.

I can't really believe that is the case, so please do correct me if
the above analysis is wrong.
