[dm-devel] [PATCH v2 0/2] dm: Avoid use-after-free of a mapped device



This mini-series of two patches avoids that the device mapper
implementation can trigger a use-after-free during removal of a
mapped device. The two patches in this series are:
- block: Convert blk_run_queue() recursion into iteration.
- dm: Avoid running the md queue after the last dm_put().

Note: these patches are the result of source reading. As far as I know this issue has not (yet) caused any harm.

Changes compared to v1:
- Invoking blk_run_queue() again guarantees that the queue will be run
  sooner or later.
- Refined patch descriptions and source code comments.
- Left out the "Cc: <stable vger kernel org>" tags.
