[dm-devel] About function bio_detain in file dm-cache-target.c



Hi all,
    I think bio_detain(in dm-cache-target.c) may cause some bug.

If the returned value of dm_bio_detain is not zero, it indicated cell existing.So it should defer bio.
But in dm_bio_detain-->bio_detain--->__bio->detain
>        cell = __search_bucket(prison->cells + hash, key);
>        if (cell) {
>               if (inmate)
>                        bio_list_add(&cell->bios, inmate);
>                *cell_result = cell;
>                return 1;
>        }  
If found the cell, it will add bio to ->bios of cell.

Maybe bio_detain(in dm-cache) is like:
    r=dm_get_cell();
    if (!r)
      dm_bio_detain


Thanks!
