Subject[patch 40/58] kprobes: Fix locking imbalance in kretprobes
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Ananth N Mavinakayanahalli <ananth@in.ibm.com>

commit f02b8624fedca39886b0eef770dca70c2f0749b3 upstream.

Fix locking imbalance in kretprobes:

=====================================
[ BUG: bad unlock balance detected! ]
-------------------------------------
kthreadd/2 is trying to release lock (&rp->lock) at:
[<c06b3080>] pre_handler_kretprobe+0xea/0xf4
but there are no more locks to release!
other info that might help us debug this:
1 lock held by kthreadd/2:
#0: (rcu_read_lock){..--}, at: [<c06b2b24>] __atomic_notifier_call_chain+0x0/0x5a
stack backtrace:
Pid: 2, comm: kthreadd Not tainted 2.6.29-rc8 #1
