PCI: Fix is_added/is_busmaster race condition
When a PCI device is detected, pdev->is_added is set to 1 and proc and sysfs entries are created. When the device is removed, pdev->is_added is checked for one and then device is detached with clearing of proc and sys entries and at end, pdev->is_added is set to 0. is_added and is_busmaster are bit fields in pci_dev structure sharing same memory location. A strange issue was observed with multiple removal and rescan of a PCIe NVMe device using sysfs commands where is_added flag was observed as zero instead of one while removing device and proc,sys entries are not cleared. This causes issue in later device addition with warning message "proc_dir_entry" already registered. Debugging revealed a race condition between the PCI core setting the is_added bit in pci_bus_add_device() and the NVMe driver reset work-queue setting the is_busmaster bit in pci_set_master(). As these fields are not handled atomically, that clears the is_added bit. Move the is_added bit to a separate private flag variable and use atomic functions to set and retrieve the device addition state. This avoids the race because is_added no longer shares a memory location with is_busmaster.
