Default mtd: fix bdev exclusive open bugs in block2mtd::add_device()

There are two bdev exclusive open bugs.

* open_bdev_exclusive() must not be called with NULL holder. Use dev
as the holder.

* open_by_devnum() doesn't open the bdev exclusively but
block2mtd_free_device() always assumes it. Explicitly claim the
bdev.

The latter is rather clumsy but will be simplified with future
blkdev_get/put() cleanups.

Yeap, sure.

Hmmm... not really. The patch is small enough and splitting it won't
really buy as any better bisectability. Splitting patches into
logical changes is a good thing but it's no religious dogma. Let's
apply it to the point it actually helps.

Thank you.

- Updated to use local variable @mode to cache FMODE_* masks as
suggested by Artem Bityutskiy.

This change will cause two conflicts in the series. I'm not reposting
them now as they're mostly trivial. Git tree is fully updated.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/misc.git cleanup-bd_claim

Jens, please let me know when/if you want the full series reposted.

Thanks.
