[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 120/133] md: flush ->event_work before stopping array.

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Wed Sep 30 2015 - 06:00:29 EST

3.16.7-ckt18 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: NeilBrown <neilb@xxxxxxxx>

commit ee5d004fd0591536a061451eba2b187092e9127c upstream.

The 'event_work' worker used by dm-raid may still be running
when the array is stopped. This can result in an oops.

So flush the workqueue on which it is run after detaching
and before destroying the device.
