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


From: Jan Kara <jack@xxxxxxx>

commit 74177f55b70e2f2be770dd28684dd6d17106a4ba upstream.

When filesystem is corrupted in the right way, it can happen
ext4_mark_iloc_dirty() in ext4_orphan_add() returns error and we
subsequently remove inode from the in-memory orphan list. However this
deletion is done with list_del(&EXT4_I(inode)->i_orphan) and thus we
leave i_orphan list_head with a stale content. Later we can look at this
content causing list corruption, oops, or other issues. The reported
trace looked like:

Fix the problem by using list_del_init() as we always should with
i_orphan list.
