Subject[098/119] block: use after free bug in __blkdev_get
2.6.31-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Neil Brown <>

commit 960cc0f4fef607baabc2232fbd7cce5368a9dcfd upstream.

commit 0762b8bde9729f10f8e6249809660ff2ec3ad735
(from 14 months ago) introduced a use-after-free bug which has just
recently started manifesting in my md testing.
I tried git bisect to find out what caused the bug to start
manifesting, and it could have been the recent change to
blk_unregister_queue (48c0d4d4c04) but the results were inconclusive.

This patch certainly fixes my symptoms and looks correct as the two
calls are now in the same order as elsewhere in that function.
