      dm thin: replace dm_cell_release_singleton with cell_defer_except · b7ca9c92
      Joe Thornber authored
      Change existing users of the function dm_cell_release_singleton to share
      cell_defer_except instead, and then remove the now-unused function.
      Everywhere that calls dm_cell_release_singleton, the bio in question
      is the holder of the cell.
      If there are no non-holder entries in the cell then cell_defer_except
      behaves exactly like dm_cell_release_singleton.  Conversely, if there
      *are* non-holder entries then dm_cell_release_singleton must not be used
      because those entries would need to be deferred.
      Consequently, it is safe to replace use of dm_cell_release_singleton
      with cell_defer_except.
      This patch is a pre-requisite for "dm thin: fix race between
      simultaneous io and discards to same block".
