dm io: fix a race condition in the wake up code for sync_io
There's a race condition between the atomic_dec_and_test(&io->count) in dec_count() and the waking of the sync_io() thread. If the thread is spuriously woken immediately after the decrement it may exit, making the on stack io struct invalid, yet the dec_count could still be using it. Fix this race by using a completion in sync_io() and dec_count().
