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

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

From: Hannes Reinecke <hare@suse.de>

commit 6c182cd88d179cbbd06f4f8a8a19b6977940753f upstream.

When multipath needs to retry an ioctl the reference to the
current live table needs to be dropped. Otherwise a deadlock
occurs when all paths are down:
- dm_blk_ioctl takes a reference to the current table
  and spins in multipath_ioctl().
- A new table is being loaded, but upon resume the process
  hangs in dm_table_destroy() waiting for references to
  drop to zero.

With this patch the reference to the old table is dropped
prior to retry, thereby avoiding the deadlock.
