Subject[PATCH 3.2 080/106] configfs: Fix race between create_link and configfs_rmdir
3.2.93-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Nicholas Bellinger <nab@linux-iscsi.org>

commit ba80aa909c99802c428682c352b0ee0baac0acd3 upstream.

This patch closes a long standing race in configfs between
the creation of a new symlink in create_link(), while the
symlink target's config_item is being concurrently removed
via configfs_rmdir().

This can happen because the symlink target's reference
is obtained by config_item_get() in create_link() before
the CONFIGFS_USET_DROPPING bit set by configfs_detach_prep()
during configfs_rmdir() shutdown is actually checked..

This originally manifested itself on ppc64 on v4.8.y under
heavy load using ibmvscsi target ports with Novalink API:

To close this race, go ahead and obtain the symlink's target
config_item reference only after the existing CONFIGFS_USET_DROPPING
check succeeds.

This way, if configfs_rmdir() wins create_link() will return -ENONET,
and if create_link() wins configfs_rmdir() will return -EBUSY.
