[PATCH] Fix current_io_context() vs set_task_ioprio() race
I know nothing about io scheduler, but I suspect set_task_ioprio() is not safe. current_io_context() initializes "struct io_context", then sets ->io_context. set_task_ioprio() running on another cpu may see the changes out of order, so ->set_ioprio(ioc) may use io_context which was not initialized properly.
