Subject[patch 31/30] bsdacct: fix access to invalid filp in acct_on()

2.6.27-stable review patch

----------------
From: Renaud Lottiaux <renaud.lottiaux@kerlabs.com>

commit df279ca8966c3de83105428e3391ab17690802a9 upstream.

The file opened in acct_on and freshly stored in the ns->bacct struct can
be closed in acct_file_reopen by a concurrent call after we release
acct_lock and before we call mntput(file->f_path.mnt).

Record file->f_path.mnt in a local variable and use this variable only.
