[dm-devel] [PATCH] scsi-dh-emc: fix activate vs set_params race


This fixes a possible race in scsi_dh_emc. It is untested because I don't 
have the hardware. It could happen when we reload a multipath device and 
path failure happens at the same time.

This is a theoretical race condition (there are no reports of it 
hapenning), but a different bug was already triggered under the same 
conditions in QA testing.



scsi-dh-emc: fix activate vs set_params race

The activate routine may be called concurrently with the set_params
routine. This can happen when dm-multipath device is reloaded. When we
reload a device mapper device, the new target instance is being created
(that could call the set_params method) while the old target instance is
still active (that could call the activate method).

The activate and set_params routine share the same data and sense buffer,
so it could result in incorrect behaviour if they are called concurrently.
This patch adds a mutex to fix the race.
