Subject[06/11] tty: fix race in tty_fasync
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>

commit 703625118069f9f8960d356676662d3db5a9d116 upstream.

We need to keep the lock held over the call to __f_setown() to
prevent a PID race.

Thanks to Al Viro for pointing out the problem, and to Travis for
making us look here in the first place.
