Generally the term of lockless is used when lock is avoided,
and that isn't the case of __blkdev_reread_part(), because
bd_mutex is definitely required here.

Actually, the function is introduced and should be used in case
that bd_mutex has been held already, such as clearing fd in
loop release().

Strictly speaking, it should be "Make sure you aren't calling it
with bd_mutex already held in current context".
