Subject[PATCH 10/14] DebugFS : more file/directory creation error handling
Date
From: Mathieu Desnoyers <compudj@krystal.dyndns.org>

Correct dentry count to handle creation errors.

This patch puts a dput at the file creation instead of the file removal :
lookup_one_len already returns a dentry with reference count of 1. Then,
the dget() in simple_mknod increments it when the dentry is associated
with a file. In a scenario where simple_create or simple_mkdir returns
an error, this would lead to an unwanted increment of the reference
counter, therefore making file removal impossible.
