      [PATCH] dm: fix find_device race · bfc5ecdf
      Alasdair G Kergon authored
      
      
      There is a race between dev_create() and find_device().
      
      If the mdptr has not yet been stored against a device, find_device() needs to
      behave as though no device was found.  It already returns NULL, but there is a
      dm_put() missing: it must drop the reference dm_get_md() took.
      
      The bug was introduced by dm-fix-mapped-device-ref-counting.patch.
      
      It manifests itself if another dm ioctl attempts to reference a newly-created
      device while the device creation ioctl is still running.  The consequence is
      that the device cannot be removed until the machine is rebooted.  Certain udev
      configurations can lead to this happening.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
