Subject[34-longterm 082/179] PM: Free memory bitmaps if opening /dev/snapshot fails
Date
From: Michal Kubecek <mkubecek@suse.cz>

-------------------
This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/paulg/longterm-queue-2.6.34.git
If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.
-------------------
commit 8440f4b19494467883f8541b7aa28c7bbf6ac92b upstream.

When opening /dev/snapshot device, snapshot_open() creates memory
bitmaps which are freed in snapshot_release(). But if any of the
callbacks called by pm_notifier_call_chain() returns NOTIFY_BAD, open()
fails, snapshot_release() is never called and bitmaps are not freed.
Next attempt to open /dev/snapshot then triggers BUG_ON() check in
create_basic_memory_bitmaps(). This happens e.g. when vmwatchdog module
is active on s390x.
