Btrfs: drop unnecessary device lock
Xiao Guangrong [Wed, 20 Apr 2011 10:08:47 +0000 (10:08 +0000)]
Drop device_list_mutex for the reader side  on clone_fs_devices and
btrfs_rm_device pathes since the fs_info->volume_mutex can ensure the device
list is not updated

btrfs_close_extra_devices is the initialized path, we can not add or remove
device at this time, so we can simply drop the mutex safely, like other
initialized function does(add_missing_dev, __find_device, __btrfs_open_devices
...).
