Subject[patch 38/58] Get rid of bumping fs_struct refcount in pivot_root(2)
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

commit f8ef3ed2bebd2c4cb9ece92efa185d7aead8831a upstream.

Not because execve races with _that_ are serious - we really
need a situation when final drop of fs_struct refcount is
done by something that used to have it as current->fs.
