Subject[ 46/68] eCryptfs: Fix lockdep warning in miscdev operations
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.0-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Tyler Hicks <tyhicks@canonical.com>

commit 60d65f1f07a7d81d3eb3b91fc13fca80f2fdbb12 upstream.

Don't grab the daemon mutex while holding the message context mutex.
Addresses this lockdep warning:

ecryptfsd/2141 is trying to acquire lock:
(&ecryptfs_msg_ctx_arr[i].mux){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffffa029c213>] ecryptfs_miscdev_read+0x143/0x470 [ecryptfs]
but task is already holding lock:
(&(*daemon)->mux){+.+...}, at: [<ffffffffa029c2ec>] ecryptfs_miscdev_read+0x21c/0x470 [ecryptfs]
which lock already depends on the new lock.

the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:
