Subject[135/272] ext4: make grpinfo slab cache names static
2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com>

commit 2892c15ddda6a76dc10b7499e56c0f3b892e5a69 upstream.

In 2.6.37 I was running into oopses with repeated module
loads & unloads. I tracked this down to:

fb1813f4 ext4: use dedicated slab caches for group_info structures

(this was in addition to the features advert unload problem)

The kstrdup & subsequent kfree of the cache name was causing
a double free. In slub, at least, if I read it right it allocates
& frees the name itself, slab seems to do something different...
so in slub I think we were leaking -our- cachep->name, and double
freeing the one allocated by slub.

After getting lost in slab/slub/slob a bit, I just looked at other
sized-caches that get allocated. jbd2, biovec, sgpool all do it
more or less the way jbd2 does. Below patch follows the jbd2
method of dynamically allocating a cache at mount time from
a list of static names.

(This might also possibly fix a race creating the caches with
parallel mounts running).

[Folded in a fix from Dan Carpenter which fixed an off-by-one error in
the original patch]
