Subject[patch 05/71] drivers/mmc/card/block.c: fix refcount leak in mmc_block_open()
2.6.26-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org>
commit 70bb08962ea9bd50797ae9f16b2493f5f7c65053 upstream

mmc_block_open() increments md->usage although it returns with -EROFS when
default mounting a MMC/SD card with write protect switch on. This
reference counting bug prevents /dev/mmcblkX from being released on card
removal, and situation worsen with reinsertion until the minor number
range runs out.
