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

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

From: Mahesh Rajashekhara <Mahesh.Rajashekhara@pmcs.com>

commit c5bebd829dd95602c15f8da8cc50fa938b5e0254 upstream.

One of the customer had reported that the set of raid logical arrays will
become unavailable (I/O offline) after a long hours of IO stress test.  The OS
wouldn`t be accessible afterwards and require a hard reset.

This driver patch has a fix for race condition between the doorbell and the
circular buffer. The driver is modified to do an extra read after clearing the
doorbell in case there had been a completion posted during the small timing
window.

With this fix, we ran IO stress for ~13 days. There were no IO failures.
