GFS2: Fix kernel NULL pointer dereference by dlm_astd
From: Bob Peterson <email@example.com>
This patch fixes a problem in an error path when looking
up dinodes. There are two sister-functions, gfs2_inode_lookup
and gfs2_process_unlinked_inode. Both functions acquire and
hold the i_iopen glock for the dinode being looked up. The last
thing they try to do is hold the i_gl glock for the dinode.
If that glock fails for some reason, the error path was
incorrectly calling gfs2_glock_put for the i_iopen glock twice.
This resulted in the glock being prematurely freed. The
"minimum hold time" usually kept the glock in memory, but the
lock interface to dlm (aka lock_dlm) freed its memory for the
glock. In some circumstances, it would cause dlm's dlm_astd daemon
to try to call the bast function for the freed lock_dlm memory,
which resulted in a NULL pointer dereference.
