block: fix ext_devt_idr handling
While adding and removing a lot of disks disks and partitions this sometimes shows up: WARNING: at fs/sysfs/dir.c:512 sysfs_add_one+0xc9/0x130() (Not tainted) Hardware name: sysfs: cannot create duplicate filename '/dev/block/259:751' Modules linked in: raid1 autofs4 bnx2fc cnic uio fcoe libfcoe libfc 8021q scsi_transport_fc scsi_tgt garp stp llc sunrpc cpufreq_ondemand powernow_k8 freq_table mperf ipv6 dm_mirror dm_region_hash dm_log power_meter microcode dcdbas serio_raw amd64_edac_mod edac_core edac_mce_amd i2c_piix4 i2c_core k10temp bnx2 sg ixgbe dca mdio ext4 mbcache jbd2 dm_round_robin sr_mod cdrom sd_mod crc_t10dif ata_generic pata_acpi pata_atiixp ahci mptsas mptscsih mptbase scsi_transport_sas dm_multipath dm_mod [last unloaded: scsi_wait_scan] Pid: 44103, comm: async/16 Not tainted 2.6.32-195.el6.x86_64 #1 Call Trace: warn_slowpath_common+0x87/0xc0 warn_slowpath_fmt+0x46/0x50 sysfs_add_one+0xc9/0x130 sysfs_do_create_link+0x12b/0x170 sysfs_create_link+0x13/0x20 device_add+0x317/0x650 idr_get_new+0x13/0x50 add_partition+0x21c/0x390 rescan_partitions+0x32b/0x470 sd_open+0x81/0x1f0 [sd_mod] __blkdev_get+0x1b6/0x3c0 blkdev_get+0x10/0x20 register_disk+0x155/0x170 add_disk+0xa6/0x160 sd_probe_async+0x13b/0x210 [sd_mod] add_wait_queue+0x46/0x60 async_thread+0x102/0x250 default_wake_function+0x0/0x20 async_thread+0x0/0x250 kthread+0x96/0xa0 child_rip+0xa/0x20 kthread+0x0/0xa0 child_rip+0x0/0x20 This most likely happens because dev_t is freed while the number is still used and idr_get_new() is not protected on every use. The fix adds a mutex where it wasn't before and moves the dev_t free function so it is called after device del.
