[PATCH 3.13 184/198] aio: fix aio request leak when events are reaped by userspace

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Tue Jul 15 2014 - 18:13:52 EST -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Benjamin LaHaise <bcrl@xxxxxxxxx>

commit f8567a3845ac05bb28f3c1b478ef752762bd39ef upstream.

The aio cleanups and optimizations by kmo that were merged into the 3.10
tree added a regression for userspace event reaping. Specifically, the
reference counts are not decremented if the event is reaped in userspace,
leading to the application being unable to submit further aio requests.
This patch applies to 3.12+. A separate backport is required for 3.10/3.11.
This issue was uncovered as part of CVE-2014-0206.
