From: Rabin Vincent <rab...@axis.com>

If a block device is closed while iterate_bdevs() is handling it, the
following NULL pointer dereference occurs because bdev->b_disk is NULL
in bdev_get_queue(), which is called from blk_get_backing_dev_info() (in
turn called by the mapping_cap_writeback_dirty() call in
__filemap_fdatawrite_range()):

The crash is easily reproducible by running the following command, if an
msleep(100) is inserted before the call to func() in iterate_devs():

 while :; do head -c1 /dev/nullb0; done > /dev/null & while :; do sync; done

Fix it by holding the bd_mutex across the func() call and only calling
func() if the bdev is opened.
