md: avoid races when stopping resync.
There has been a race in raid10 and raid1 for a long time which has only recently started showing up due to a scheduler changed. When a sync_read request finishes, as soon as reschedule_retry is called, another thread can mark the resync request as having completed, so md_do_sync can finish, ->stop can be called, and ->conf can be freed. So using conf after reschedule_retry is not safe. Similarly, when finishing a sync_write, calling md_done_sync must be the last thing we do, as it allows a chain of events which will free conf and other data structures. The first of these requires action in raid10.c The second requires action in raid1.c and raid10.c Cc: stable@kernel.org Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>
