Subject[patch 28/32] autofs: fix error code path in autofs_fill_sb()
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------

From: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>

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.

stack backtrace:

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.
