      [PATCH] dm: prevent removal if open · 5c6bd75d
      Alasdair G Kergon authored
      
      
      If you misuse the device-mapper interface (or there's a bug in your userspace
      tools) it's possible to end up with 'unlinked' mapped devices that cannot be
      removed until you reboot (along with uninterruptible processes).
      
      This patch prevents you from removing a device that is still open.
      
      It introduces dm_lock_for_deletion() which is called when a device is about to
      be removed to ensure that nothing has it open and nothing further can open it.
       It uses a private open_count for this which also lets us remove one of the
      problematic bdget_disk() calls elsewhere.

      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!
