md/raid5: fetch_block must fetch all the blocks handle_stripe_dirtying wants.
commit 108cef3aa41669610e1836fe638812dd067d72de upstream. It is critical that fetch_block() and handle_stripe_dirtying() are consistent in their analysis of what needs to be loaded. Otherwise raid5 can wait forever for a block that won't be loaded. Currently when writing to a RAID5 that is resyncing, to a location beyond the resync offset, handle_stripe_dirtying chooses a reconstruct-write cycle, but fetch_block() assumes a read-modify-write, and a lockup can happen. So treat that case just like RAID6, just as we do in handle_stripe_dirtying. RAID6 always does reconstruct-write. This bug was introduced when the behaviour of handle_stripe_dirtying was changed in 3.7, so the patch is suitable for any kernel since, though it will need careful merging for some versions.
