As the documentation for kthread_stop() says, "if threadfn() may call
do_exit() itself, the caller must ensure task_struct can't go away".
dm-crypt does not ensure this and therefore crashes when crypt_dtr()
calls kthread_stop().  The crash is trivially reproducible by adding a
delay before the call to kthread_stop() and just opening and closing a
dm-crypt device.

This problem was introduced by bcbd94ff481e ("dm crypt: fix a possible
hang due to race condition on exit").

Looking at the description of that patch (excerpted below), it seems
like the problem it addresses can be solved by just using
set_current_state instead of __set_current_state, since we obviously
need the memory barrier.

| dm crypt: fix a possible hang due to race condition on exit
|
| A kernel thread executes __set_current_state(TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE),
| __add_wait_queue, spin_unlock_irq and then tests kthread_should_stop().
| It is possible that the processor reorders memory accesses so that
| kthread_should_stop() is executed before __set_current_state().  If
| such reordering happens, there is a possible race on thread
| termination: [...]

So this patch just reverts the aforementioned patch and changes the
__set_current_state(TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE) to set_current_state(...).  This
fixes the crash and should also fix the potential hang.
