[PATCH] Fix race between starved list processing and device removal

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Avoid that the sdev reference count can drop to zero before
the queue is run by scsi_run_queue(). Also avoid that the sdev
reference count can drop to zero in the same function by invoking
__blk_run_queue().
