A changelog cdev can be held open indefinitely, and obd structures can
come and go while it is open.  So it isn't safe to choose and obd
at open time, and continue to use it.

Instead, we need to choose and obd on each access that needs it, and
hold the chlg_registered_dev_lock mutex while using the obd.  This
prevents the obd from being freed.

To help with this, we store a link to the chlg_registered_dev
in the chlg_reader_state, and use the name of the dev (instead
of the name of the obd) in some error messages.

This is and RFC - I have only compile-tested it.
It seems sensible to me, but I know little about what is happening
here so I could easily be missing something important.

Thanks,

`struct llog_ctxt' has a reference on that obd (and `struct llog_handle' 
has a reference on a `struct llog_ctxt').
I don't think letting the obd go away is safe.

 From there the obd is irrevocably referenced. I suspect it is used for 
more than just its name.
Maybe trying to unmount the (wrong) mountpoint will fail after that, but 
I am not confident.
