[Xen-devel] [PATCH] xen: xenbus: Fix a possible data race in xs_request_enter

The read operation to "req->type" is protected by
the lock on line 128, but the write operation to
this data on line 118 is not protected by the lock.
Thus, there may exist a data race for "req->type".

To fix this data race, the write operation to "req->type" 
should be also protected by the lock.
