[PATCH] ub: atomic add_disk

<zaitcev> I am taling about this: "if (disk->flags & GENHD_FL_UP) del_gendisk(disk);"
<zaitcev> If del_gendisk() undoes add_disk() like viro just said, why is it conditional?
<viro> huh?
<viro> add_disk() sets the damn flag
<zaitcev> So, I should not need to check ever
<viro> so the above is "if I've called add_disk(), call gendisk()"
<viro> which might be what you want, of course
<viro> but usually you know if you'd done add_disk() on that puppy anyway

In ub, nobody upstream should ever see half-constructed disks before
they were passed to add_disk. To that end, only add the struct lun to
the list on the path of no return. With that fix in place, we do
not need to test GENHD_FL_UP.
