[PATCH 3.16 117/125] NFSD: Decrease nfsd_users in nfsd_startup_generic fail

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Wed Sep 03 2014 - 19:01:02 EST

3.16-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Kinglong Mee <kinglongmee@xxxxxxxxx>

commit d9499a95716db0d4bc9b67e88fd162133e7d6b08 upstream.

A memory allocation failure could cause nfsd_startup_generic to fail, in
which case nfsd_users wouldn't be incorrectly left elevated.

After nfsd restarts nfsd_startup_generic will then succeed without doing
anything--the first consequence is likely nfs4_start_net finding a bad
laundry_wq and crashing.
