Subject[PATCH] [DLM] fix a couple of races
Date
From: Satyam Sharma <ssatyam@cse.iitk.ac.in>

Fix two races in fs/dlm/config.c:

(1) Grab the configfs subsystem semaphore before calling
config_group_find_obj() in get_space(). This solves a potential race
between get_space() and concurrent mkdir(2) or rmdir(2).

(2) Grab a reference on the found config_item _while_ holding the configfs
subsystem semaphore in get_comm(), and not after it. This solves a
potential race between get_comm() and concurrent rmdir(2).
