Subject: [PATCH 4.9 12/16] rbd: dont return 0 on unmap if RBD_DEV_FLAG_REMOVING is set

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

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

From: Ilya Dryomov <idryomov@...il.com>

commit 85f5a4d666fd9be73856ed16bb36c5af5b406b29 upstream.

There is a window between when RBD_DEV_FLAG_REMOVING is set and when
the device is removed from rbd_dev_list.  During this window, we set
"already" and return 0.

Returning 0 from write(2) can confuse userspace tools because
0 indicates that nothing was written.  In particular, "rbd unmap"
will retry the write multiple times a second:

  10:28:05.463299 write(4, "0", 1)        = 0
  10:28:05.463509 write(4, "0", 1)        = 0
  10:28:05.463720 write(4, "0", 1)        = 0
  10:28:05.463942 write(4, "0", 1)        = 0
  10:28:05.464155 write(4, "0", 1)        = 0
