Subject[PATCH 3/7] block: loop: fix another reread part failure
Date
loop_clr_fd() can be run piggyback with lo_release(), and
under this situation, reread partition may always fail because
of bd_mutex which has been held in release path.

This patch detects the situation by the reference count, and
call blkdev_reread_part_nolock() to avoid acquiring the lock again.

In the meantime, this patch switches to new kernel APIs
of blkdev_reread_part() and blkdev_reread_part_nolock().

[jarod: this is a merger of my original patch, Ming's patch, and some
reworking for my reworked first patch in the series.]
