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

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

From: Tomas Henzl <thenzl@redhat.com>

commit 7b74e912785a11572da43292786ed07ada7e3e0c upstream.

While adding and removing a lot of disks disks and partitions this
sometimes shows up:

This most likely happens because dev_t is freed while the number is
still used and idr_get_new() is not protected on every use.  The fix
adds a mutex where it wasn't before and moves the dev_t free function so
it is called after device del.
