Subject[061/156] NFS: Prevent another deadlock in nfs_release_page()
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Trond Myklebust <Trond.Myklebust@netapp.com>

commit d812e575822a2b7ab1a7cadae2571505ec6ec2bd upstream.

We should not attempt to free the page if __GFP_FS is not set. Otherwise we
can deadlock as per

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15578
