3.16.7-ckt16 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Wengang Wang <wen.gang.wang@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 4fabb59449aa44a585b3603ffdadd4c5f4d0c033 upstream.

Fixes: 3e0249f9c05c ("RDS/IB: add refcount tracking to struct rds_ib_device")

There lacks a dropping on rds_ib_device.refcount in case rds_ib_alloc_fmr
failed(mr pool running out). this lead to the refcount overflow.

A complain in line 117(see following) is seen. From vmcore:
s_ib_rdma_mr_pool_depleted is 2147485544 and rds_ibdev->refcount is -2147475448.
That is the evidence the mr pool is used up. so rds_ib_alloc_fmr is very likely
to return ERR_PTR(-EAGAIN).

115 void rds_ib_dev_put(struct rds_ib_device *rds_ibdev)
116 {
117 BUG_ON(atomic_read(&rds_ibdev->refcount) <= 0);
118 if (atomic_dec_and_test(&rds_ibdev->refcount))
119 queue_work(rds_wq, &rds_ibdev->free_work);
120 }

fix is to drop refcount when rds_ib_alloc_fmr failed.
