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

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

From: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

commit ce23bba842aee98092225d9576dba47c82352521 upstream.

idr allocation in blk_alloc_devt() wasn't synchronized against lookup
and removal, and its limit check was off by one - 1 << MINORBITS is
the number of minors allowed, not the maximum allowed minor.

Add locking and rename MAX_EXT_DEVT to NR_EXT_DEVT and fix limit
checking.
