Subject[PATCH 3.18 12/26] nfs: Dont take a reference on fl->fl_file for LOCK operation
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Benjamin Coddington <>

[ Upstream commit 4b09ec4b14a168bf2c687e1f598140c3c11e9222 ]

I have reports of a crash that look like __fput() was called twice for
a NFSv4.0 file. It seems possible that the state manager could try to
reclaim a lock and take a reference on the fl->fl_file at the same time the
file is being released if, during the close(), a signal interrupts the wait
for outstanding IO while removing locks which then skips the removal
of that lock.

Since 83bfff23e9ed ("nfs4: have do_vfs_lock take an inode pointer") has
removed the need to traverse fl->fl_file->f_inode in nfs4_lock_done(),
taking that reference is no longer necessary.
