Subject[PATCH] autofs: fix error code path in autofs_fill_sb()
[PATCH] autofs: fix error code path in autofs_fill_sb()

When kernel is compiled with old version of autofs (CONFIG_AUTOFS_FS), and
new (observed at least with 5.x.x) automount deamon is started, kernel
correctly reports incompatible version of kernel and userland daemon, but
then screws things up instead of correct handling of the error:

autofs: kernel does not match daemon version
=====================================
[ BUG: bad unlock balance detected! ]
-------------------------------------
automount/4199 is trying to release lock (&type->s_umount_key) at:
[<c0163b9e>] get_sb_nodev+0x76/0xa4
but there are no more locks to release!

other info that might help us debug this:
no locks held by automount/4199.

Leftover inexact backtrace:
=======================

and then deadlock comes.

The problem: autofs_fill_super() returns EINVAL to get_sb_nodev(), but before
that, it calls kill_anon_super() to destroy the superblock which won't be
needed. This is however way too soon to call kill_anon_super(), because
get_sb_nodev() has to perform its own cleanup of the superblock first
(deactivate_super(), etc.). The correct time to call kill_anon_super() is in
the autofs_kill_sb() callback, which is called by deactivate_super() at proper
time, when the superblock is ready to be killed.

I can see the same faulty codepath also in autofs4. This patch solves issues in
both filesystems in a same way - it postpones the kill_anon_super() until the
proper time is signalized by deactivate_super() calling the kill_sb() callback.

Patch against 2.6.19-rc6-mm2.
