[PATCH 3.18 089/144] dm: fix AB-BA deadlock in __dm_destroy()




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

------------------

[ Upstream commit 2a708cff93f1845b9239bc7d6310aef54e716c6a ]

__dm_destroy() takes io_barrier SRCU lock (dm_get_live_table) and
suspend_lock in reverse order.  Doing so can cause AB-BA deadlock:

  __dm_destroy                    dm_swap_table
  ---------------------------------------------------
                                  mutex_lock(suspend_lock)
  dm_get_live_table()
    srcu_read_lock(io_barrier)
                                  dm_sync_table()
                                    synchronize_srcu(io_barrier)
                                      .. waiting for dm_put_live_table()
  mutex_lock(suspend_lock)
    .. waiting for suspend_lock

Fix this by taking the locks in proper order.
