[PATCH 12/21] Drivers: hv: fcopy: set .owner reference for file operations

From: K. Y. Srinivasan
Date: Sat Apr 11 2015 - 19:54:46 EST

From: Vitaly Kuznetsov <vkuznets@xxxxxxxxxx>

Get an additional reference otherwise a crash is observed when hv_utils module is being unloaded while
fcopy daemon is still running. .owner gives us an additional reference when
someone holds a descriptor for the device.
