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

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

From: Shiva Krishna Merla <shivakrishna.merla@netapp.com>

commit 954a73d5d3073df2231820c718fdd2f18b0fe4c9 upstream.

Whenever multipath_dtr() is happening we must prevent queueing any
further path activation work.  Implement this by adding a new
'pg_init_disabled' flag to the multipath structure that denotes future
path activation work should be skipped if it is set.  By disabling
pg_init and then re-enabling in flush_multipath_work() we also avoid the
potential for pg_init to be initiated while suspending an mpath device.

Without this patch a race condition exists that may result in a kernel
panic:

1) If after pg_init_done() decrements pg_init_in_progress to 0, a call
   to wait_for_pg_init_completion() assumes there are no more pending path
   management commands.
2) If pg_init_required is set by pg_init_done(), due to retryable
   mode_select errors, then process_queued_ios() will again queue the
   path activation work.
3) If free_multipath() completes before activate_path() work is called a
   NULL pointer dereference like the following can be seen when
   accessing members of the recently destructed multipath:

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000090
RIP: 0010:[<ffffffffa003db1b>]  [<ffffffffa003db1b>] activate_path+0x1b/0x30 [dm_multipath]
[<ffffffff81090ac0>] worker_thread+0x170/0x2a0
[<ffffffff81096c80>] ? autoremove_wake_function+0x0/0x40
