[PATCH 3.12 19/82] blkcg: fix gendisk reference leak in blkg_conf_prep()

From: Jiri Slaby
Date: Mon Aug 24 2015 - 05:33:12 EST

From: Tejun Heo <tj@xxxxxxxxxx>

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


commit 5f6c2d2b7dbb541c1e922538c49fa04c494ae3d7 upstream.

When a blkcg configuration is targeted to a partition rather than a
whole device, blkg_conf_prep fails with -EINVAL; unfortunately, it
forgets to put the gendisk ref in that case. Fix it.
