md: Avoid waking up a thread after it has been freed.
Two related problems: 1/ some error paths call "md_unregister_thread(mddev->thread)" without subsequently clearing ->thread. A subsequent call to mddev_unlock will try to wake the thread, and crash. 2/ Most calls to md_wakeup_thread are protected against the thread disappeared either by: - holding the ->mutex - having an active request, so something else must be keeping the array active. However mddev_unlock calls md_wakeup_thread after dropping the mutex and without any certainty of an active request, so the ->thread could theoretically disappear. So we need a spinlock to provide some protections. So change md_unregister_thread to take a pointer to the thread pointer, and ensure that it always does the required locking, and clears the pointer properly.
