fix idr_find() locking
This is a patch that fixes the way idr_find() used to be called in ipc_lock(): in all the paths that don't imply an update of the ipcs idr, it was called without the idr tree being locked. The changes are: . in ipc_ids, the mutex has been changed into a reader/writer semaphore. . ipc_lock() now takes the mutex as a reader during the idr_find(). . a new routine ipc_lock_down() has been defined: it doesn't take the mutex, assuming that it is being held by the caller. This is the routine that is now called in all the update paths.
