With this patch I was not able to recreate the hang. Lacking an 100%
way of recreating this, I can't be completely sure of the fix, but as
you understood from the code how this hang could happen, I'm quite
confident that the fix is working.

(As I do not use the raid10 personality only patching raid1.c was
sufficient for me, I didn't test the version that also patched
raid10.c as its not even compiled on my kernel.)

Thanks for the fix!
