Subject[ 07/12] cifs: fix dentry refcount leak when opening a FIFO on lookup
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com>

commit 5bccda0ebc7c0331b81ac47d39e4b920b198b2cd upstream.

The cifs code will attempt to open files on lookup under certain
circumstances. What happens though if we find that the file we opened
was actually a FIFO or other special file?

Currently, the open filehandle just ends up being leaked leading to
a dentry refcount mismatch and oops on umount. Fix this by having the
code close the filehandle on the server if it turns out not to be a
regular file. While we're at it, change this spaghetti if statement
into a switch too.
