[PATCH 007 of 10] md: notify userspace on 'stop' events

From: NeilBrown
Date: Sun May 18 2008 - 21:13:00 EST

From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@xxxxxxxxx>

This additional notification to 'array_state' is needed to allow the monitor
application to learn about stop events via sysfs. The
sysfs_notify("sync_action") call that comes at the end of do_md_stop() (via
md_new_event) is insufficient since the 'sync_action' attribute has been
removed by this point.

(Seems like a sysfs-notify-on-removal patch is a better fix. Currently removal
updates the event count but does not wake up waiters)
