[PATCH 3.10 25/35] md/raid1: extend spinlock to protect raid1_end_read_request against inconsistencies

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Fri Aug 14 2015 - 14:03:40 EST

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


From: NeilBrown <neilb@xxxxxxxx>

commit 423f04d63cf421ea436bcc5be02543d549ce4b28 upstream.

raid1_end_read_request() assumes that the In_sync bits are consistent
with the ->degaded count.
raid1_spare_active updates the In_sync bit before the ->degraded count
and so exposes an inconsistency, as does error()
So extend the spinlock in raid1_spare_active() and error() to hide those

This should probably be part of
Commit: 34cab6f42003 ("md/raid1: fix test for 'was read error from
last working device'.")
as it addresses the same issue. It fixes the same bug and should go
to -stable for same reasons.

Fixes: 76073054c95b ("md/raid1: clean up read_balance.")
