    commit 7e6358d2
    
     upstream.
    
    A NULL pointer is seen if two concurrent "vgchange -ay -K <vg name>"
    processes race to load the dm-thin-pool module:

    The race results in a NULL pointer because:
    
    Process A (vgchange -ay -K):
     	a. send DM_LIST_VERSIONS_CMD ioctl;
     	b. pool_target not registered;
     	c. modprobe dm_thin_pool and wait until end.
    
    Process B (vgchange -ay -K):
     	a. send DM_LIST_VERSIONS_CMD ioctl;
     	b. pool_target registered;
     	c. table_load->dm_table_add_target->pool_ctr;
     	d. _new_mapping_cache is NULL and panic.
    Note:
     	1. process A and process B are two concurrent processes.
     	2. pool_target can be detected by process B but
     	_new_mapping_cache initialization has not ended.
    
    To fix dm-thin-pool, and other targets (cache, multipath, and snapshot)
    with the same problem, simply dm_register_target() after all resources
    created during module init (as labelled with __init) are finished.
